NHE365: Cameron Hawkins, Head of Energy and Environment from NHS Property Services

The coronavirus pandemic gave us a glimpse of something important: positive changes in air pollution and our climate. Our environment is hugely impactful on our health, and as an NHS that commitment has been recognised.

Back in 2020, the NHS announced it’s ambitions to become the world’s first ‘net-zero’ health service by 2040, ten years before the country’s own legally-binding net-zero target.

As was outlined by Sir Simon Stevens when the NHS announced their green plans back in 2020, some 5,700 lives could be saved each year by improved air quality. Even more could see their overall health improve and be in a position to self-manage their conditions, rather than requiring NHS treatment.

Covid-19 has already left the NHS with a sizeable treatment backlog, so anything which can be done to improve patient health and reduce demand is beneficial for all.

Working together, we can help the NHS realise its green ambitions as per the Net-Zero National Health Service report and its ambitious 2040 target. Today, NHE365 host it engaging virtual event where we address the challenges that lie ahead, and the solutions needed to achieve just that.

Kicking off the first session was Cameron Hawkins, Head of Energy and Environment from NHS Property Services. Take a look his insightful keynote.

Later this afternoon well be joined by Kathy Scott, Chief Operating Officer and Deputy Chief Executive from Yorkshire and The Humber Academic Health Science Network, Dr Marcia Philbin, Chief Executive at Faculty of Pharmaceutical Medicine and many more industry experts.

There’s still time to join us, we’ll be back at 2pm. Follow the link here to register https://www.events.nationalhealthexecutive.com/nheregistration

NHE365 Virtual Festival: Digital Healthcare

The integration of new technology, such as using virtual outpatient appointments instead of face-to-face reviews of patients in the hospital. Adapting the ways in which our NHS workers serve people has been critical in continuing to provide high-quality treatment, a positive patient experience and preventing Covid-19 transmission during the pandemic. Our healthcare sector has the potential to transform the way we continue to provide essential services while also improving patient care. But how easy is the integration of these innovations into routine NHS practice?

On the 28th of October, at the NHE365 Virtual Hospitals & Technology Enabled Care online event, we will be discussing patient flow and experience, reducing waiting times, reducing the patient backlog and increasing technology adoption. Will you be attending?
