Engaging staff

Saving Lives, Saving Money, Securing the Future – Sustainability and the health & care sector – Awareness Package

The Sustainable Development Unit has developed a Resource Pack for organisations to run a short (approx 30 minute) session on sustainability within their existing induction or staff professional development programme. It contains a slide-set, facilitator’s guide and handouts. The session and materials are designed to be relevant to NHS staff of all levels.

The pack was developed in collaboration with the SDU, the HR team at the East of England Strategic Health Authority and staff from the Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust.



 Staff from the SDU, Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust and Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust help to develop the Saving Lives, Saving Money, Securing the Future Staff Awareness Pack

This Resource Pack was originally designed for the NHS in 2010/11:

  • Slide set (19 slides) - There is a core slide set (with facilitator’s notes beneath each slide) and also the opportunity to include local slides from your organisation or region.
  • The Facilitator’s Guide ( 9 pages) - Contains background information, summary of benefits for organisations, tips and advice for facilitators, a list of additional materials and a glossary of terms.

If you are interested, then we also have a full list of staff awareness programmes (see below).
