Green Surgery report launched

The Infection Prevention Society has endorsed a new landmark report that sets the groundwork for reducing the carbon footprint of surgical care. The Green Surgery report has involved significant input and collaboration with individuals and organisations working across the surgical care pathway. The result is the world’s first detailed account of how to reduce the environmental impact of surgical care while maintaining high quality patient care. A dedicated website with a link to download the full report and key recommendations can be viewed here.
