Connecting and Reconnecting; Green Health Network Online Event
We were delighted to welcome our network members to the first in a series of networking events that we will be providing throughout the year.
The first event was all about reconnecting and getting to know each other along with finding out what members are looking for from this network. The top three things that came out of the discussion were:
- Sharing good practice and sharing learning
- Information on what’s happening
- Exploring partnerships and collaboration
We will be running a series of events throughout the year to connect people and practice across NHS Lothian and beyond. We will be featuring some of the amazing projects that are already happening and hear about how people have collaborated to overcome some of the barriers.
- Tuesday, 14 November 2023, 12 midday to 1pm
- Wednesday, 6 March 2024, 12 midday to 1pm
