Green Surgery Webinar

Venue: Online.

Start: Wednesday 10 Apr 2024 13:00

End: Wednesday 10 Apr 2024 14:30

The Green Surgery Report, published in November 2023 by a collaboration between Brighton & Sussex Medical School, UK Health Alliance on Climate Change and the Centre for Sustainable Healthcare, lays out a clear statement of the need for sustainable surgical practice and points to practical actions for all members of the surgical team to reduce surgery’s environmental harms while safeguarding or improving care for patients. The Sustainable Healthcare Coalition and The Association of British HealthTech Industries (ABHI) will host a webinar on 10th April 2024 to discuss the report’s findings and how supply chains, procurement and industry can play critical roles in accelerating delivery of the decarbonisation and enhanced sustainability that is needed. In the webinar, we will hear from:

  • Prof Mahmood Bhutta, Brighton & Sussex Medical School and one of the report’s lead authors
  • Dr Fiona Adshead, Chair of the Sustainable Healthcare Coalition
  • Alexandra Hammond, Head of Sustainable Procurement & Supply Chain at NHS England
  • Andrew Stevenson, Co-Chair Sustainability in Surgery at RCSEng
  • Addie MacGregor, Sustainability Manager for ABHI
