Green Network: May 2023


This ongoing network is open to all staff (clinical and non-clinical) who would like to learn and share ideas on how they can reduce their carbon foot-print and live and work more sustainably. 


In this session, we will be joined by Helena Gregory (North Cumbria Pharmacy and Medicines Lead) and Vicki Casey (Medicines Optimisation Business Support Manager) from the NHS North East and North Cumbria ICB. They will be talking to us about 'Greener Inhaler Use', including the impact of inhalers on the environment, resources to support the work and the public-facing behaviour change campaign. We will also hear from Dr Jenny Calvert who will share the improvement work happening in Maryport for respiratory.

The Green network will focus on building 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.

  • Network with likeminded people passionate about green issues
  • Increase awareness of the environmental impact healthcare has on our planet
  • Build and share knowledge on how we can reduce our carbon foot-print and live and work more sustainably
  • Embed improvements and greener options into the way that we work
