Sustainable Health and Care Week – 25–29 June
Celebrating and supporting action at a local level.
The first week-long celebration of environmental sustainability across the NHS, social care and public health sector is happening this June.
Sustainable Health and Care Week, which takes place from the 25–29 June, shines a light on the great work going on in health and care organisations to boost health, protect the environment and save money.
Co-ordinated by NHS Employers and the Sustainable Development Unit the week is a chance for organisations across the country to promote their achievements improving the quality of services for patients, the working lives of staff and as a local community asset.
Jerome Baddley, acting director, Sustainable Development Unit said:
“High quality, well led health and care organisations recognise the crucial role they play in their communities, as major employers, buyers and polluters. Thinking beyond their walls, protecting local environment, society and economy, as critical life support systems. Our staff, patients and public trust and expect us to take visible lead in health and care, not just healthcare.”
Organisations across the sector are being encouraged to take part. The campaign has produced a range of resources and toolkits to support activity.
