About the event…
This Tuesday, we are incredibly excited to be launching our brand new talk series: Eco Medics Directors’ Cut.
Achieving a truly net zero healthcare service is an ambition that requires innovation, dedication and collaboration. The conversation has to include everyone - from frontline clinicians to hospital directors - and the potential to learn from each other is unlimited.
In the Directors’ Cut talk series, Eco Medics invites directors from various organisations to share their progress towards Net Zero and to raise the challenges they face, and invites healthcare professionals to be a part of the conversation - to hear what is being implemented from the top-down, and to raise their own ideas and thoughts directly with those in charge.
Each series will include 2 - 3 short presentations with questions, followed by a short panel discussion to which everyone is invited to take part. We can’t wait to see where this talk series leads and we are excited for you to be a part of the conversation!
Speakers on this episode…
James Dixon - Head of Sustainability at Newcastle Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust - the first healthcare organisation in the world to declare a climate emergency.
Mat Molyneux - consultant anaesthetist, University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trust. His sustainability work has mostly been in the area of reducing the release of anaesthetic gases into the atmosphere, many of which are potent greenhouse gases. His work has led to University Hospitals Bristols saving 30,000 kg CO2eq each month.
Luke O’Shea - Director of Innovation at University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and Senior Responsible Owner (SRO) for UCLH’s sustainability programme, which has already seen over £2.5 million invested into carbon reduction strategies.
