East Midlands NHS Sustainable Development Network

Date: 30 April 2014

Location: Nottingham Conference Centre, Burton Street, Nottingham, NG1 4BU.

The East Midlands NHS Sustainable Development Network aims to equip organisations that commission and deliver health services to meet national carbon reduction emissions targets of 80% by 2050 whilst saving energy and improving the quality, productivity and effectiveness of health services.  It provides strategic engagement for stakeholders and helps to share best practice and learning. 

This will be an inspirational and practical event to support organisations that commission and deliver health services in the East Midlands to deliver a whole health community approach to developing sustainable health services.  The event will bring together those involved in commissioning and delivering health services in the East Midlands, from the NHS and other Health Service organisations, academia, public health, the voluntary and community sector and industry to share knowledge and learn from each other.  

The event will be chaired by Dr Margaret Abbott from NHS Nottingham City Clinical Commissioning Group.

Speakers include: 

  • Jonathon Porritt CBE – distinguished writer, broadcaster and commentator on sustainable development
  • David Pencheon OBE - Head of the Sustainable Development Unit for NHS England and Public Health England  

There will also be a presentation on final report of the East Midlands NHS Carbon Reduction Project and key issues from the Public Health England event in the East Midlands.

Places are limited and representatives from health services organisations and people with knowledge and expertise in sustainable development will be prioritised.  We aim to include a range of representation from all parts of the East Midlands.
