August is all about delivering sustainable
healthcare in Newcastle #LetsBeSustainable
Newcastle Hospitals recently became the first NHS Trust to declare a climate emergency – publicly acknowledging the climate crisis which threatens the health of populations all across the world including here in the North East.
We are collaborating with the University and City Council to commit to delivering a zero carbon Newcastle but everyone has a role to play in delivering sustainable care.
To make changes in your area and get recognition at our #Shine end of year awards ceremony we’d love you to sign yourselves and colleagues up to become a Green Impact team.
Green Impact is a staff competition to engage different departments/teams in sustainability. There is an online workbook with different actions for team to complete, which is split into different levels and get a little harder as you progress.
The workbook is bespoke to Newcastle Hospitals, and is relevant for both clinical and non-clinical areas. Contact the sustainability team for more information – firstname.lastname@example.org
