On behalf of the School of Medicine, Sydney, the Dean would like to invite you to a Health Leadership event on ‘Climate Change and the Health Sector: Lessons from the NHS’ presented by Dr David Pencheon OBE.

The presentation will take place at the School of Medicine, Sydney, on Thursday 17 May 2018, 5.30-7.00pm (refreshments followed by lecture and Q&A).

Dr Pencheon is the founder Director of the Sustainable Development Unit (SDU) for NHS England and Public Health England (www.sduhealth.org.uk). The SDU was established in 2007 with the task of ensuring the NHS operated in an environmentally sustainable way – starting with reducing its carbon emissions. Whether by coincidence or by causation, between 2007 and 2015 the NHS reduced its carbon emissions by 11% – exceeding the 10% target set in 2009, and despite health and care activity increasing by 18%. This represents a saving of £1.85bn, and more broadly, the first steps in a transition towards a sustainable and resilient health and care system.

Please RSVP by Monday 14 May to Alexandra Hankinson: alexandra.hankinson@nd.edu.au

We hope that you are able to join us for this important Health Leadership presentation.
