NHE365: Waste and Recycling within the NHS

It is reported that England generates 177m tonnes of waste every year.

Healthcare waste management is a critical component in reducing waste's carbon footprint through resource efficiency, transportation impacts, and disposal arrangements.

On 26th May 22, NHE365 virtual events united leaders from across the health sector to explore healthcare waste producers, legislative requirements, ways to increase waste minimisation and reduce the associated environmental and carbon implications of waste management.

Joining us for this discussion;

Shortly after we had the pleasure of hearing from Dr Gareth Thompson, Sustainability Clinical & innovation Lead and Emergency Care Doctor, Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust who discussed the May 2021 release of their Green Plan and how it was created with an emphasis on how to maximise scarce resources for sustainability by empowering staff to take action.

Dr Gareth also shared how the team at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust are in the process of launching our staff Green Community Network to further empower our staff and support them to run their own green initiatives.
