East Midlands NHS Sustainable Development Network Event

Date: Wednesday 30 April 2014
Event: East Midlands NHS Sustainable Development Network Event
Venue: Nottingham Conference Centre, Burton, Nottingham

The next East Midlands NHS Sustainable Development Network aims to equip organisations that commission and deliver health services to meet national carbon reduction emissions targets of 80% by 2050 whilst saving energy and improving the quality productivity and effectiveness of health services. It provides strategic enagement for stakeholders and helps to share best practice and learning.

This will be an inspirational and practical event to support organisations that commission and deliver health services in the East Midlands to deliver a whole health community approach to developing sustainable health services.  The event will bring together those involved in commissioning and delivering health services in the East Midlands, from the NHS and other Health Service organisations, academia, public health, the voluntary and community sector and industry to share knowledge and learn from each other.  There will be opportunities to develop our own organisations’ Sustainable Development Management Plans.  


We are delighted to inform you that Jonathon Porritt CBE – distinguished writer, broadcaster and commentator on sustainable development and David Pencheon, Head of the Sustainable Development Unit have  agreed to inform us about the latest issues and guidance regarding Sustainability and Sustainable Health services.  You will also hear about the final report of the East Midlands NHS Carbon Reduction Project and key issues from the Public Health England event in the East Midlands.  The event will be chaired by Dr Margaret Abbott from NHS Nottingham City Clinical Commissioning Group.


Our speakers will inform us about national, regional and local guidance and issues including the national “Sustainable, Resilient, Healthy People & Places A Sustainable Development Strategy for the NHS, Public Health and Social Care system” launched by Sir David Nicholson and Duncan Selbie at the end of January.
