Our Green Network is an opportunity to build knowledge and awareness of the climate crisis and how we can be more environmentally sustainable across the north and west Cumbria health and care system.

At our last Green Network, we were joined by Dr Richard Hixson, Consultant in Critical Care at the County Durham and Darlington NHS Foundation Trust and Co-founder of Healthcare Ocean. Richard talked to us about how humans are damaging our oceans, how changes are occurring at an unprecedented rate, and why we need to be worried. Richard also spoke about the role human healthcare must play in reducing oceanic harm whilst helping drive environmental protection and improvement:

Our next Green Network is taking place on the 5th October, 1-2pm (via Microsoft Teams), where we will be joined by Dr Clare Winter, Senior Net Zero Programme Manager at North East and North Cumbria Integrated Care System. Clare will be discussing with us the North East and North Cumbria Integrated Care Board (ICB) Green Plan. Clare will be discussing the journey in creating the plan, as well as the next steps. Book your place here...
