Net-Zero NHS Virtual Event

Net-Zero NHS Recap: How to Stay Ahead of the Curve

Back in 2020, the NHS announced its ambitions to become the world’s first ‘net-zero’ health service by 2040.

And since then our NHS has made significant changes that have had a huge impact on our healthcare services and even our health.

COP26 saw all UK health services committing to becoming net-zero and building climate resilience through the COP26 Health Programme. So, what does this mean for the NHS?

Open engagement among all stakeholders is necessary to determine how best to tackle net-zero, biodiversity, and climate resilience issues. Implementing the first zero-emission ambulance fleet in the world. Carbon reduction plans based on the Social Value Model for the supply chain and a £330 million investment in smart technology and low-carbon hospitals.

In August 2021, We hosted our first Net-Zero NHS virtual event. which saw the likes of Cameron Hawkins, NHS Property Services, Ian Stenton & Preeya Bailie, NHS England & NHS Improvement, Dr Marcia Philbin, Faculty of Pharmaceutical Medicine and many more.

Our speakers discussed the challenges around net-zero NHS estates, decarbonising medicines, technology in achieving green targets and the vital role procurement plays in health and our environment.

So, how far has our health sector come in terms of reaching these goals?

To answer this question National Health Executive is returning on the 26th of May 2022 for a second NHE365 Net-Zero NHS online event, with an already jam-packed agenda!

Hear from the likes of speakers returning such as Cameron Hawkins and our new speakers Esther Ukala, NHS Property Services, James Feed, Health Education England, Paul Graham, Kingstone Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and many more.

We are looking to recap on the importance of working towards net-zero targets and talk about the success of our NHS over the past years and what innovations are being implemented to continue this green journey.
