Alder Hey workshop - November 2015
The Masterclass was intended to be a Network building event and builds on the momentum of a successful sustainability event in June 2015 which brought together partners from across different sectors. The morning was an opportunity to learn about the sustainable elements from the development of Alder Hey Children's Hospital. The purpose of the afternoon was to consult with stakeholders to identify priorities for implementing the national strategy and learn how the Network can further support sustainability initiatives.
The discussion from the Masterclass will contribute to the results already obtained from consultation via semi-structured interviews with key sustainability leads from Local Authorities, NHS organisations, academia and Public Health England.
A short summary of the session is available here.
