The Royal College of Psychiatrists Improving the lives of people with mental illness

 

Sustainability Scholars


The College has worked with the Centre for Sustainable Healthcare to create four Sustainability Scholarship positions. These are advanced trainees in psychiatry who use their special interest day to work with their local CCG to develop sustainable models of care. Through this scholarship programme they gain a unique opportunity to work with CSH, to learn about sustainability and commissioning and develop skills in leadership and quality improvement.

These are the four current sustainability scholars:
