Resource Description: 

SusQI project completed as part of the Leeds Green Ward Competition 10th January - 25th March by the Education Team.

Team Members:

  • Cleone Pardoe – Clinical Teaching Fellow, Post-IMT2 Doctor
  • Alexander Strother – Clinical Teaching Fellow, Post-FY2 Doctor
  • Linh Mao – Undergraduate Medical Education Clerical Officer & Receptionist
  • Amanda (Mandy) Shotton – Undergraduate Medical Education Service Manage  

Project Aims:

1. Reduce the impact of self-directed practice (SDP) student training rooms across the triple bottom line, by streamlining equipment packs for our 5 most popular skills: NGT, ABG, cannulation, venepuncture and catheter skills.

2. Empower students to be conscious of the financial and environmental cost of items they use in the SDP and clinical environments.

3. Save the Undergraduate department money, that can be better invested into improving the student experience and promoting sustainable healthcare.


By implementing sustainable skills packs and engaging students, the team will save 538.16 kgCO2e per year - equivalent to 1,544.12 miles driven in an average car. They will also save £623.39 per year.
