2018 Event

Meet the stakeholder group and find out how to get involved here


In 2018 the Environment Network responded to the wish to not be London centric by holding the event in Birmingham. That years theme was ‘The role water and water borne organisms play in healthcare associated infection’.

The structure of the day and the remit of the network was developed based on the results of a survey that was distributed through a variety of professional bodies and networks.

Meetings are structured with a number of lecture based sessions in the morning slot and case studies in the afternoon (see the case studies page for the case studies from all meetings).

The set up of the day focusses on shared learning and network development, so we can help support each other across the challenges that the environment can present.
