Green Impact in Healthcare Week

July 22, 2021

We all know that the last year has been a difficult time for all, especially those working in healthcare. That's why we wanted to spend a week, celebrating all of the fantastic work healthcare professionals have been doing to champion sustainability and strive towards achieving a Greener NHS.

Within Green Impact, we have over 180 teams within NHS Trusts, 64 dental practices and over 900 GP surgeries participating. Teams have been focusing on a variety of sustainability areas, including green prescribing, reducing single use plastics, creating allotments and switching to sustainable suppliers.

Follow @sosukcharity on twitter this week to see spotlights on different teams and use the #GreenImpact to get involved and share your Green Impact story!

You can see all of the spotlights in more detail in our case study document which you can download here.

If you work in the healthcare sector and are part of our Green Impact team - enter our competition to win a donation of £50 to your charity of choice! We would just like to hear your sustainability idea that is viable for your area of work. We will be sharing these ideas to inspire others to implement them and you can enter the competition through our website here: http://greenimpact.nus.org.uk/green-impact-in-healthcare-week/

Join us during this week in celebrating healthcare teams and get involved through retweeting, liking and commenting our our spotlights during this week.
