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.
