Taking Care of the Scary Stuff at the Rose Bowl
28 June 2018 - Well Met
Over 180 clinicians and experts in managing mass casualty events came together today at The Rose Bowl, part of the Well Met conferencing department for Leeds Beckett University, for The Scary Stuff - a conference covering the sort of major trauma topics that keep clinicians awake at night!
The conference, hosted by the West Yorkshire Critical Care & Major Trauma Operational Delivery Network, featured other members of the emergency services, such as Yorkshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust and a delegation from the Home Office Forensic Pathology team, who advised on the action to take before, during and after a major trauma event, such as preserving the evidence.
Andrea Berry, Operational Delivery Manager for the Critical Care and Major Trauma Networks, one of the key organisers behind the event said:
“We wanted to create a conference that covered the areas that we know concern clinicians about very real events we know have happened, and potentially, could happen in the future.
“Our keynote experts are specialists in a number of areas from emergency planning, managing blast and terror attack injuries to coping with the after effects of a major incident, both for patients and their families, and our front-line staff and their personal wellbeing.
“Delegates went away from the conference equipped with knowledge and information from our experts to help them to create a detailed major trauma strategy and have an effective plan in place to cope with a mass casualty, should it occur.”
Located in the centre of Leeds, the Rose Bowl features the very latest in conference amenities, design and AV. The state-of-the-art academic venue offers breakout facilities, meeting rooms and dining spaces; with meeting room for up to 80 people, auditoriums for up to 256 delegates and banqueting for up to 300 dinner guests.
With a dedicated event manager on-hand to assist from the initial enquiry right through to the post-event briefing, Well Met can confidently host a seamless event, whatever the topic, at the Rose Bowl.
Clare Vidler Conference Manager at Well Met, said:“We are seeing a growing number of NHS conferences at our venues, and we’re very proud of our clinical and medical associations. Our job is always to make sure that our delegates and organisers need only focus on the content of their event, safe in the knowledge that we will take care of everything else.“
