Amarantha Fennell-Wells
SUSTAINABLE HEALTHCARE FELLOW: WELSH CLINICAL LEADERSHIP TRAINING PROGRAM

Amarantha is taking a break from practising dentistry to embed sustainability within quality improvement training and medical education at Cardiff Medical School, and to support efforts to reduce the environmental impact of healthcare in Wales. After completing three years of Dental Core Training in a variety of specialties (including a gruelling on-call rota in oral and maxillofacial surgery during the COVID-19 pandemic), Amarantha was thrilled to be appointed as the first Welsh Leadership Fellow in Sustainable Healthcare for September 2020. Amarantha will also be working within CSH networks to address carbon emission hotspots, such as nitrous oxide use and inhalers, for Cardiff and Vale University Health Board.
