SAP - sustainable action planning resources for clinical teams

Content

SAP is a programme to support clinical teams in taking action for sustainability.  Structured around two facilitated workshops, SAP helps front-line staff to learn about sustainable healthcare, focus in on their priorities and put together a green action plan.  The action plan can then be adopted into the team’s routine management processes, becoming the framework for ongoing sustainability improvements.

EU legislation a barrier to sustainable actions?

We are in contact with a Member of the European Parliament who is willing to challenge outdated EU legislation which is proving a barrier to sustainability in kidney care - as long as there is a clear and achievable policy goal.  Does anyone have a specific example of EU legislation preventing them from making a sustainable change in their local service?

Many thanks, Frances

Commissioners urged to consider "social value"

An article by Mo Girach for the NHS Alliance. The piece comments on the implications of two recent pieces of legislation impacting on the delivery of health care services (particularly by independent charities and social enterprises) – the Public Services (Social Value) Act 2012 and the Localism Act 2011. Both should become active forces during 2013.
