This training course will help health professionals, quality improvement leads and medical students to become carbon literate.

Though we know the NHS’s carbon footprint overall, the carbon impact of specific projects and operations (service changes, quality improvement projects or procurement of new products) are not routinely measured. In order for the NHS to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2050, carbon needs to become an additional currency alongside money, understood by everyone working in the health system.
