Greener NHS

What is the purpose?
The NHS is the first health system in the world to set a target to reach net zero carbon because climate change threatens the health and wellbeing of the patients we serve now and in the future.

The Greener NHS Knowledge Hub connects more than 1000 members to information, tools and resources to help the NHS deliver the target, and provides a space to share knowledge, ideas and best practice.

The benefits to members

  • Connect with other people who are passionate about the issues and across boundaries - the FutureNHS platform is open beyond the NHS.
  • Easily access the latest resources to enable you to embed sustainability.
  • Share and find great ideas, solutions and knowledge already out there in local health and care systems. Many trusts and other organisations are posting content to the forums so it’s not all coming from the central teams. Share challenges and seek advice from peers via the discussion forum.
  • Keep on top of the latest news – the central team get messages out quickly across the system via the blog or discussion forum.
  • Feedback to the central team on issues and how they can make improvements to the work they are doing.

What's next?
They are currently looking at expanding the Knowledge Hub to better cover the workstreams and give colleagues across the system a better user experience, making it easier for them to find their guidance and resources.
