The Trust’s Sustainability Strategy has just been published, laying out our approach for the next three years. Sustainability is one of our four strategic aims, alongside high-quality care, better health and being a great place to work.

We have been working hard to be a more sustainable Trust for many years. We have embedded sustainability as one of our four strategic aims, reduced our energy consumption through switching lights to LED, generated electricity through the installation of solar panels, created two NHS forests to protect biodiversity and enable nature-based solutions to care and supported wider work in the NHS long-term plan, such as care closer to home.

The Trust is therefore delighted to announce the launch of its three-year Green Plan, which sets out goals and targets to help us reduce our impact on the environment, as well as saving money and improving the local communities in which we serve. You can find it in the strategy section by following this link or download it direct via this link.

You can also view a video introduction to the strategy by Trust chair Ingrid Barker on YouTube by following this link or by clicking on the image below.
