Public Health Registrar Sustainable Development Network
The Public Health Registrar Sustainable Development Network is comprised of a group of Public Health Registrars across the UK. We hope you read our recently launched report.
The foundations of the network were developed by Fiona Head and Kate Charlesworth, who developed a nationwide education programme on environmental sustainability. Since then, the network has grown, with members from each of the training regions in England, alongside Specialty Registrars from Scotland and Wales. The network meets regularly through telephone meetings chaired by James Smith and Stephen Dorey.
Given the inextricable link between public health and environmental sustainability, the network aims to promote the issue through activities such as reducing the carbon footprint of training, teaching regarding sustainability, and becoming involved in project work relating to this issue. The meetings allow us to share good practice, discuss training placements and have a natter about a subject we are all passionate about!
In the report there are case studies of sustainable development teaching in different regions, provided by Emma Waters, Ruchi Baxi and Paul Fisher.
If you would like further information or like to contact us, please do refer to the report for details on how to do this.
