New co-leads needed to help support and run our networks community: Could it be you?

Thursday, 28 September, 2023

Are you interested in making healthcare more sustainable? Volunteer with us and lead our network into a greener future.

Our networks are looking for new co-leads to help support and run them. 

Our networks bring together patients, clinicians, researchers, educators, students, and managers interested in Sustainable Healthcare. They provide a platform for sharing resources, knowledge, and ideas and for connecting with like-minded individuals from around the world. For more details, see our volunteer job descriptions below and get in touch with CSH Networks Lead, Rachael, as soon as possible to state your interest in volunteering.

  • Endoscopy: Endoscopy SusNet aims to identify and foster sustainable practice within endoscopy nationally and internationally, alongside the financial and social sustainability co-benefits
  • Primary Care: this is your place to connect with others, taking forward a range of things, including sustainable prescribing, improving sustainable respiratory care, and lots of ideas for quality improvement in sustainability
  • Surgical Care: for everyone interested in improving the environmental sustainability of operating theatres. The network is open equally to all professions including ODPs, theatre nurses, anaesthetists, surgeons, and non-clinicians
  • Paediatrics: an online community of healthcare professionals passionate about reducing the environmental impact of paediatric care, to share examples of how they are currently tackling this problem and to generate ideas on how to further improve the care they deliver
  • Nursing: an online community for nurses, students, nurse educators and retired nurses from across the globe who take the threats from climate change seriously and wish to work together to establish what this means for nursing practice
  • Prosthetic & Orthotic: a platform for clinicians to share ideas on bringing the professions forward with manufacturing and clinical practices, which are more sustainable and less environmentally damaging.

Network leads play a key role, taking responsibility for the growth, development and delivery of our networks communities. These are volunteering roles and we are keen to have you join us to share your experiences and examples of projects, share resources, organise and host events, and ask questions of the group.
