This study day takes an in-depth look at the links between the climate crisis and our patients health and have a focus on how the climate crisis exacerbates long standing inequality in society.

We will outline how healthcare itself is contributing to the climate and ecological emergency and how the various UK health systems are responding to this.

We will learn how you can use the GreenED framework to take practical steps to improve the environmental sustainability of our practice of emergency medicine.
