RCGP North East London Faculty Scholarships for Leaders in Climate Health Equity

Race(ism) and place determine health outcomes in the RCGP NEL Faculty, and our area has been disproportionately affected by COVID-19 with an exacerbation in inequalities experienced more profoundly by women. In our areas where the environment is unfair, patients consult more, often feel less enabled after consultations and doctors are left more stressed. Some of our children grow up with the worst air quality in London and many families suffer from fuel poverty and depend on food banks. Climate Health Equity encompasses our goal for sustainable care in our Faculty.

The aim of these scholarships is to support leadership for Climate Health Equity in the RCGP NEL Faculty and in our NHS North Central and East London Leadership Community.

About the scholarships

Scholarships for a total of 6 (six) GPs, working or living in the RCGP NEL Faculty, to attend the Centre for Sustainable Primary Care Course on 11 June 2021. In addition to attending the course, scholars will commit to being part of a monthly Action Learning Set coached by Provost/Board member and will be expected to attend two out of five learning sets which will run monthly on the evening of the last Wednesday of the month, 7pm to 8.30pm, from June to November 2021. The first action learning set will be on Wednesday 30 June 2021. Scholars will also be asked to present their Climate Health Equity Project at the Faculty AGM in November 2021.
