If you want to support the work we are doing at the NW London ICB, you can get involved as a green champion. Green Champions promote sustainability, encouraging effective resource use and lead by example to help colleagues do the same. This is a volunteer role. We meet quarterly.
If you are interested and want to find out more get in touch with our Sustainability Manager, Séverine Turgis.
If you work for one of the trusts, get in touch with them directly.
Primary Care scholarship
NHS North West London has set up a scholarship for primary care staff to participate in the Sustainable Primary Care Foundation Course.
The course provides an overview of the field for primary care staff at any level who are new to sustainable healthcare and considers questions such as:
- How is the health system both vulnerable to and contributing to climate change and ecological degradation?
- What would a sustainable health system look like?
- What might the wider benefits be and how can we achieve this?
The training will help you to understand why sustainability matters, then help you to develop sustainable strategies and actions to help practices go green.
