“Just a note to thank you all very much for your contributions today. The session was really interactive and interesting, and certainly got people thinking. The mix of knowledge on the scope of this agenda, with the skills that we can use to influence it gave us some really practical tools. I had lots of positive feedback after we had finished and am hoping that this provides a kick start to our work as Registrars on sustainability. I am looking forward to our next steps.” Rachel Chapman, WM Public Health Registrars Sustainability Lead
