A great opportunity for Clinical Commissioning Groups

We have a great opportunity for Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) to work on sustainable commissioning and sustainable healthcare by participating in CSH’s CCG Sustainability Scholars Programme.

The CCG Sustainability Scholars Programme is designed to support CCGs in improving their sustainability whilst equipping health professionals for sustainable healthcare. The Scholarship is part-time and open to doctors in training, nurses and allied health professionals each year. Seconded to the role, the Scholar will undertake applied projects which will be identified and designed in partnership with the CCG.

Key elements of the programme are:

  1. Development and sharing of projects and resources in sustainable commissioning and sustainable healthcare tailored to the identified need of the CCG.
  2. Contribution to a specialty-wide discourse on sustainability aligned with the scholar’s CCG work, through internal and external presentations, publications, events and online networking .
  3. Development of a motivated and talented healthcare worker as a future leader in sustainability. CSH scholarship programmes typically attract highly able candidates and provide a unique opportunity to learn about healthcare systems from a different perspective, while developing skills in service improvement, commissioning, policy development, leadership, and public speaking.

CSH will provide formal training (3 face-to-face training days), individual mentoring and project support. The Scholar will take part in a well-established training programme with resources and learning templates. He/she will also have the opportunity to participate in CSH’s sustainability networks and engage with a wider group of professionals from across different specialties and backgrounds.
