Retaining the Passion: COP 26, sustainability and climate action in healthcare.

On the 31st of October 2021, the opening day of COP26, Clare and Craig catch up and discuss their reasons for choosing this fortnight’s episode, “COP26, sustainability and climate action in healthcare”.

They are then delighted to be joined by Alexis Percival, Environmental and sustainability manager for Yorkshire Ambulance Service, and Clare Nash RN, Head of Clinical Products Management. Both discuss their vital work to reduce the NHS’s carbon footprint and net-zero aims.

Some of the statistics are stark and frightening. However, we don’t want people to be scared into inaction. We hope listening to Alexis and Clare inspires you to improve your sustainable practices in your personal and professional lives.

Hear them discuss the need to include sustainability in healthcare preregistration education, how sustainable practices are often more patient-centred while saving the planet, and much more.
