The Health Foundation is funding a two-year fellowship at the UK Health Alliance on Climate Change to shape and deliver a new commission on net zero carbon surgery. 

The Net-Zero carbon surgery commission is a partnership between the UK Health Alliance on Climate Change (UKHACC), Brighton and Sussex Medical School and the Centre for Sustainable Healthcare. Chaired by Professor Mahmood Bhutta, this two-year project will bring together key stakeholders from a number of national institutions, and harness existing evidence and knowledge to deliver recommendations for policy makers, institutions and individuals. The fellow will lead delivery of the commission in collaboration with the chair (including relevant project and stakeholder management, handling of evidence and report writing), support development of related education content, and lead delivery and implementation of key recommendations.
