Rethinking Decisions - latest developments

11th November 2019

Following a meeting with Mr. Macartan Hughes, Chief Ambulance Officer, the National Ambulance Service Ireland have placed a firm booking for a Rethinking Decisions course which will take place over three days in Dublin during January/ February 2020.

We’re delighted to welcome them as a client, especially as Mr. Hughes has already confirmed that he’ll be joining the first group of delegates :0)

In addition to our being asked by South Western Ambulance Service to run a pilot course for them in November/ December in Bridgwater (see below) we’ve also had an initial, and very productive, discussion with National Ambulance Service Ireland.

As a consequence of that initial exchange we’ve now been invited to the National Ambulance Service College in Dublin to meet their Chief Ambulance Officer, Mr Macartan Hughes, who is the Irish Ambulance Service’s Head of Education and Competency Assurance.

Based on our discussions so far this appointment with Mr Hughes has all the hallmarks of being yet another very productive meeting :0)

15th October 2019

Following lengthy discussions with senior managers from South Western Ambulance Service they have asked us to put on a pilot of the Rethinking Decisions course for evaluation purposes. This pilot will be run over three weeks (one day per week) between November and December 2019.

The 3-day course, which will be attended by staff representatives including paramedics, control room staff, and a member of the Hazardous Area Response Team, will be subjected to a rigorous evaluation process by these delegates to confirm its value as a suitable training resource for ambulance staff.

It’s an exciting development, and we’re really looking forward to it :0)
