Sustainable Development Management Plans
The Sustainable Development Strategy suggests that NHS, public health and social care organisations should have a board-approved Sustainable Development Management Plan (SDMP) to support their assurance in meeting legal, regulatory and policy requirements. The strategy states that an SDMP (or equivalent) should include carbon reduction, adaptation plans and action plans across the sustainability agenda.
The proportion of NHS organisations that have a Sustainable Development Management Plan that is signed off at board level is an indicator of the Public Health Outcomes Framework and a key measure of our success towards a more sustainable health system and society. As of June 2015 , 55% of northern NHS organisations meet this goal.
The Sustainability and Health Network for Northern England has an action to ‘help organisations develop and implement SDMPs by sharing best practices, facilitating networking and providing opportunities for training. The organisations listed below all have their SDMP or equivalent publicly available on their website and have provided contact details. If you would like to find out more about how the plans were created, please use the contact details.
