Greener Care - a joint SDMP for the Isle of Wight

The Isle of Wight’s main health provider and commissioners have come together to deliver a joint SDMP for the island.

The Trust and the CCG on the Isle of Wight agreed to work together on developing a joint Sustainable Development Management Plan (SDMP) in order to align strategies and optimise outcomes.

The Plan called ‘Greener Care’ is  a shared document with a common vision, which sets out the organisations ambitions for reducing their environmental impacts and embedding sustainability principles in their operations.

It’s believed this is the first SDMP in the NHS developed collaboratively by commissioner and provider organisations together. A cross organisational SDMP is yet another example of innovative integration taking place in the Isle of Wight healthcare economy. Both the Trust Board and the CCG Governing Body have now approved Greener Care, our Sustainable Development Management Plan 2015-2020.
