Green Nephrology Update

Update from the joint RSM/Green Nephrology telemedicine and remote care meeting 11/3/11: In addition to service examples, speakers explored reasons why these models are not more widely adopted and highlighted the current tariff system as a disincentive. This could be improved if Trusts were able to charge the full face-to-face tariff for alternative forms of consultation. An audio recording of the meeting will be available online soon at the website.

The 2010 Local Representatives Survey results show a high level of activity on the ground with 66%  of units having made some changes to reduce carbon emissions. Full results at the website. Thanks to all this hard work we have increasing numbers of case studies containing hard cost and carbon savings – evidence that sustainable healthcare pays! Click here to view the case studies.
