Sustainability in ENT

Project Lead: Alison Lim

ENT UK have recommended that we work to improve sustainability in all aspects of our practice. SERN have created Sustainability QI ‘packs’ so that resources to run your own ENT sustainability project can be easily downloaded and completed. If you would like to share the results of your QI project, and receive a SERN certificate, please send us the results of your QI project.
