Dear colleagues and friends,
On behalf of the European EMS Leadership Network, I have the pleasure of inviting you to the EMS2020 congress which will be held in Glasgow, Scotland between 25-27 May 2020!
Scotland is a friendly, passionate and innovative country with a reputation for warm hospitality as well as a legacy of invention, research and knowledge. We invite you to visit the city of Glasgow, a lively, bustling place, distinctive and full of character, where you are bound to get a fantastic welcome!
EMS2020 will build on the legacy of previous congresses in Copenhagen and Madrid, with the characteristic blend of high quality scientific and research presentations mixed with an international perspective on current and emerging issues and of course a great sense of networking and fun. We will provide a unique Scottish perspective while retaining the international dimension so important for the EMS Congresses. We expect the EMS Championship to be the biggest and best yet so get your teams ready for the show!
2020 is a watershed year for EMS in Scotland as it marks the realisation of the Scottish Ambulance Service’s 2020 Strategy and also the landmark point for Scotland’s unique national Out of Hospital Cardiac Arrest Strategy. We in Scotland are keen to share our learning with international partners. This supports the main objective of EMS2020 which is to drive forward excellence in emergency care by learning and sharing together.
The European EMS Leadership Network recognises and strongly values partnership and collaborative working within the EMS community. As such we will have a fantastic scientific and speaker program, a wonderful range of exhibitors and sponsors, hands on clinical workshops of the highest quality, an EMS competition like no other and a social programme that maximizes all that Glasgow has to offer. All of this in a campus environment in the heart of Glasgow – one of Europe’s premier destinations.
We hope you will take part in EMS2020. We will do everything possible to make your visit to the EMS2020 Scotland unforgettable!
On behalf of EMS2020
Dr. Jim Ward
Medical Director, Scottish Ambulance Service
