Calling all surgical healthcare professionals!

As a Bronze Sponsor of the #GreenWardChallenge, Vanguard is honored to announce the upcoming launch event.

Would you like to find solutions that transform surgical practice to become less harmful to the environment and build social sustainability?

The Green Surgery Challenge 2021 is an opportunity for the UK’s surgical community to recognise the value of sustainable healthcare for surgical conditions, share and promote ways of practising that are less harmful to the environment and our planet and build social sustainability as well as to continue to transform surgery for the future.

The challenge will launch on 3rd February 2021 at an online event, hosted by the Royal College of Surgeons England with Ms Victoria Pegna, co-founder of the Sustainability in Surgery working group and the President of RCSEng, Professor Neil Mortensen.

The event will include an introduction to green surgery (from Professor Mahmood Bhutta & Sustainable Surgery Fellow, Chantelle Rizan, from Brighton & Sussex Medical School), information on how to get involved in the challenge (by Dr Olivia Bush, Clinical Programme Director at the Centre for Sustainable Healthcare) and Q & A.

Join us & our partners to learn how to transform your surgical practice to make it more ‘green’ and #sustainable!
