The climate crisis is an urgent health emergency.  The School recognises the NHS England’s strategy to become net-zero and has pledged a committment to graduating healthcare professionals who have the knowledge and skills to help the NHS reach this goal.

 

The Sustainable Healthcare Principles module starting in November 2022 is for post-registration/postgraduate students, which can be taken as stand alone credit for continuing professional development, or used within a BSc, PG Cert, PGDip or MSc course.

 

The School has a Sustainability Special Interest Group which aims to:

  • Establish sustainable learning, teaching and assessments in the School
  • Embed sustainability within the curriculum of all courses delivered by the School
  • Enable research into sustainability in health and healthcare practice
  • Enact sustainability in operational practices within the School

 

All staff and students are welcome to join the Sustainability Special Interest Group by emailing SustainabilitySSHS@brighton.ac.uk
