Anaesthetists respond to NHS Scotland Climate Emergency Plan
We’re pleased to see NHS Scotland pledge to work to end the use of desflurane in their NHS Climate Emergency and Sustainability Plan. Anaesthetists are working hard to reduce environmentally harmful gas usage such as desflurane and nitrous oxide, but support from governments with detailed plans on how to achieve net zero emissions from clinical practice is crucial and we look forward to working with NHS Scotland to turn this pledge into a reality. We call on the other Governments in the UK to introduce similar policies.
