I am an anesthetic registrar in North East London. I have a passion for combating climate change and am a strong believer that we need to mobilise, organise, lobby and innovate in order to combat it. I am also frustrated about the fact that our profession plays a significant role in contributing to global warming and waste. I feel that as advocates for good health we should lead by example in protecting the planet from the catastrophic health issue that is climate change.
As a result I have set up GASP - The Greener Anaesthesia & Sustainability Project. Our aims are to educate people on climate change, waste and how we contribute in health care. Our website provides a platform for people to share project ideas and get involved in the revolution against climate change and waste.
