RCGP NEL Scholarships for Leadership on Sustainable Healthcare
The RCGP North East London Faculty is awarding six scholarships to develop leadership in our Faculty footprint. Deadline for applications is 12 noon on 20 January 2020.
The NEL Faculty is offering scholarships to support leadership for sustainable healthcare in our faculty footprint covering North London Partners in Health and Care and East London Health and Care Partnership. This is part of collaboration with the Greener Practice.
The aim of these scholarships is to bring the vision detailed in The Lancet Countdown on health and climate change to all of us who live and work in the NHS practices and Primary Care Networks in our Faculty to ensure that the health of a child born today is not defined by a changing climate.
Leadership is urgently needed because emerging evidence shows that particulates found in pollution are a significant cause of hospital admissions.
In addition pharmaceuticals are the new class of environmental contaminant exemplified by the 73 million inhalers used in the UK every year of which >63% are placed in domestic waste bins after use, most ending up in landfill or the sea.
