Resource Description: 

Results from the 2010 local Green Nephrology representatives survey: In full (although comments have been summarised) and as a single page summary for circulation and display. Also a ppt. file to use as you wish.

They represent the first full year of the programme. In summary:

  1. There is a lot of support for green nephrology at a local level 
  2. There is a high level of activity and desire to be active 
  3. The main barriers are
  • time 
  • lack of support at a senior management / Trust or Board level 
  • financial - failure to invest in cost saving initiatives (even where a good ROI has been demonstrated) because of initial start up costs.

Additionally, communications with Local Reps individually suggest that:

  • Activity is spreading beyond renal services in Cornwall, Fife, Bradford and Glasgow for projects with generic application such as waste reduction and e-consultation. 
  • Cost and carbon savings are being demonstrated for individual projects 
  • There is evidence of replication of ideas between regions
