NHS Sustainability Day of Action takes place on 27th March, with lots of activities taking place around the country. The Centre for Sustainable Healthcare is encouraging partners to plant 2 trees at 2 o'clock to show its support for the NHS Forest. The trees are free, thanks to the kind sponsorship of The Great Outdoor Gym Company, but need ordering by Monday, 10th March. If you want to do something different, then find out what other trusts are pledging to do.
The Roadshow forms part of the NHS Sustainability Day 2014 campaign as hosted by Barts Health and supported by Public Health England, NHS England, NHS Property Services, DECC and the SDU. On 11th March 2014 the Roadshow will be in Oxford.
Mahmood Bhutta, an ENT Surgeon and co-founder of the BMA Medical Fair and Ethical Trade Group, explains why the surgical instruments he uses for his work must be sourced ethically – why it’s a human rights as well as a health issue. After his presentation at the CleanMed conference in Oxford he spoke to Anuradha Vittachi about why he is so committed to action on this issue.
