Rachel Bracegirdle, Clinical Fellow in the Clinical Senate, has taken part in the latest episode of the Not A Consultation podcast, which talks about all things patient and public involvement and NHS service change.

Rachel features in episode 12, Sustainability in the NHS, alongside colleagues from our national Greener NHS team, talking about embedding sustainability into major service change and meeting the NHS net zero agenda.

Part of her work on the Clinical Leadership Fellow Scheme has seen Rachel lead on a report, Embedding healthcare sustainability in major service change, for the South East Clinical Senate. The report provides guidance to help both systems and review panels ensure sustainability is embedded into service change proposals from the outset, and to demonstrate what good looks like.

As Rachel’s fellowship comes to an end, Emily Steward said: “The Clinical Senate are incredibly proud of what Rachel has achieved during her time as clinical fellow with us and we would like to thank her again for this excellent report and wish her all the best as she continues her leadership journey.”
