I am a PhD researcher at the University of the West of England looking at sustainable development in the NHS. My focus is on enabling progress towards sustainable development in the NHS. I would like to understand more about the barriers and facilitators that clinicians face as they work towards more sustainable practices.

Dear Reader, I am a service engineer in the X-Ray field for more than 10 years. I worked in different cities and countries. I am studying now to be a manager and sustainability will be the subject of my thesis. I do believe in sustainability but, maybe, I don't agree with all the ideas around unless it is proven that it will be controllable, measurable and can make a positive change in our life or the next generations' lives. Regards.
I am an occupational therapist working in mental health services with Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust. At CSH, I lead the occupational therapy programme and manage OT Susnet. I'm proposing an expansion of the occupational therapy paradigm to incorporate sustainable global wellbeing and am researching its practical applications.

Between 2009 and 2012, Catherine worked with the Department of Health and the Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE) to design and deliver the Sustainable Social Care programme. This programme was the first to investigate the social, economic and ethical implications of a sustainable development approach to the design and delivery of adult care services and had a particular emphasis on climate change because of its impact on people in vulnerable circumstances. Other major assignments have included a climate change and health risk assessment on behalf of the London Climate Change Partnership, and an appraisal of local NHS Sustainable Development Management Plans for London’s Regional Public Health Group. Catherine is an Associate Non-executive Director of the NHS North East London and the City cluster of PCTs where her responsibilities include chairing the Clinical Performance Committee and the Individual Funding Requests Appeals Panel, as well as advising the new Commissioning Support Service. At a regional level, she is chair of the London NHS Carbon Reduction Steering Group. Catherine is a long-standing trustee of Equinox, a social care charity supporting people with alcohol, drug and mental health problems and which participated in the Baring Foundation’s special initiative on climate change, The Big Response.
