Regional and local networks

There are voluntary Sustainable Health and Care networks across the country. They bring together people across the health and social care system, who want to embed sustainability into their work.

The networks have been working for a long time to embed sustainability regionally and locally. They engage with staff in NHS, Public Health England and local authorities. Several of them are working with the newly appointed regional SROs on sustainable development. They provide events and information on areas of interest to the membership.

If you'd like to get involved in a network, help set up a group or find out more, you can contact your regional lead, listed below. They can advise you about what's happening in your area, or put you in touch with people who are making things happen at a local level. We are particularly interested in hearing from people who want to help lead a network - please contact england.sdu@nhs.net
