    Sounds like a greta project Sam. Good luck with it.

    Thanks Will
    I agree tackling both is ideal. I read somewhere though that inhalers account for 3% of the NHS carbon footprint (others will know more than me about this), so that does seem pretty important.

    Thanks Bryan. This is such an interesting paper. Highlights something we GPs have known about for years, but to capture it in a formal piece of research is very valuable. Unfortunately it made my stress levels rise just by reading it 🙂 I find operational failues outwith my control as a leader of a practice (IT, secondary care, communication…Read more

    Unfortunately I could make this session in the end as our ANP was off sick so clinical workload was very high. Would love to hear more though.

Glad you were able to dedicate some time to think about this within your own practice.

    Hi Rammya
    I’d love to revisit the issue of understanding demand for GP care and if we can use ‘nudge theory’ to help people to make choices about accessing services. Also, we have some work to share on using QI to reduce the prescribing or broad spectrum antibiotics that we can share and invite others to share wat they might be doing with regare…Read more

    • Thanks @joannabircher – both sound great. I’m curious about nudge theory too, and how it might be applied in the context of supporting patients to self care or choose the most appropriate service for themselves.

      A showcase of work on antimicrobial resistance sounds like a good bet too. @elizabethbeech – would you be able to identify people/…Read more

    This is really good. Well done to everyone involved, I’ve passed it to our PCN manager to help us plan our QI meetings.
