Finance and governance
26th March is NHS Sustainability Day 2015 - http://www.nhssustainabilityday.co.uk/
It would be great if renal units could mark the occasion - has anyone got suggestions of ways we could do this?
In the survey of Green Nephrology Local Representatives in 2010, Local Reps identified some of the barriers that can prevent them from seeing through local green initiatives. We would like to explore ways to get around these at the Green Nephrology Summit on 25th September 2013. Main barriers mentioned were:
We are in contact with a Member of the European Parliament who is willing to challenge outdated EU legislation which is proving a barrier to sustainability in kidney care - as long as there is a clear and achievable policy goal.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
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.
