How green is your hospital

Better hospitals seminar series

What could new, super-sustainable hospitals look like and what can the NHS do now to help reduce the health impact of climate change?

In this online event, the second of our ‘Better hospitals’ series, we will discuss how the NHS is approaching its ambitious net zero targets, how to build (and refurbish) for sustainability, how to make every day clinical practice more sustainable and consider the patient and wider community impact of going ‘green’, both inside and outside hospital walls.

The seminar will be live and open to all.
