Junior Doctor Sustainability Fellow

My name is Amy and I am the junior doctor ‘Sustainability Fellow’ for the Severn Deanery. It is a new post this year so I have a blank slate to work with. It is a post I have taken on in addition to being a full time junior doctor. My job description is to use my role as a clinician to help promote sustainable working practices in the deanery and thus reduce carbon emissions.
