Sustainable Kidney Care Group Scholar Programme

CSH teamed up with the UK Kidney Association (UKKA) to run a Sustainability Group Scholar Programme: a group of kidney care health professionals and health service managers brought together for a 12 month long structured action learning programme. Each CSH/UKKA Sustainability Scholar was supported with protected time by their employer for one day per week to work on a sustainability kidney care project over the course of 12 months.
