Emergency Medical Services: best model for the UK

Professor Jonathan Benger National Clinical Director for Urgent Care, NHS England is confirmed to give a keynote address at The EMS Conference 2016 held on behalf of The Larrey Society.  Prof Benger will discuss the best model for emergency medical services in the UK and managing a much greater population of patients, who have urgent rather than emergency problems, in community settings.  

In addition to his national role, Prof Benger is Professor of Emergency Care at the University of the West of England in Bristol and Consultant in Emergency Medicine at University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trust.

The EMS Conference 2016 sets a new benchmark for debating the future of emergency medical services in Britain. As the 21st century moves towards 2020 the EMS future is a continuing issue for debate within the healthcare community and the conference will seek to answer five key questions: 

1. What’s the best model for EMS in the UK? 
2. What is a 21st century paramedic? 
3. Integration. To be or not to be? 
4. Will ambulances be driven off the road? 
5. Is technology the game changer?
