Green Impact and healthcare

Green Impact for Health works with 11 NHS Trusts, dental practices and GP surgeries across the country to tackle sustainability issues within each area and we're excited to share two new developments with you!


New NHS Trusts taking part in Green Impact

We're excited to be working with Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust, who are our first Mental Health specialist trust to take part in Green Impact. With sites across the whole of Nottinghamshire and over 9,000 staff, we're looking forward to developing our Green Impact programme with their sustainability team to launch during Sustainable Health Care week in June 2019. I'm sure we will be sharing more about the trust over the coming months.

Green Impact in the British Medical Journal

We've been mentioned in the BMJ for our toolkit specifically designed for GP surgeries across the country to tackle climate change by following the actions within our online toolkit to make lasting, sustainable change.
