Supporting the National Ambition
The causes of climate change and air pollution are linked to illness such as heart disease, stroke and lung cancer. Other linked issues are extreme weather conditions such as flooding and spread of infectious diseases. All these will have impact on NHS services.
It is our duty to contribute towards the level of ambition set for reducing the carbon footprint of the NHS, public health and social care system by achieving Net Zero by 2050 both in our current activities and redevelopment plans.
