  • Bulletin No. 12
    Bulletin No. 12 - 04 November 2009

    Welcome to the 12th NHS SDU bulletin. As the year starts to draw to a close I am beginning to reflect on nearly a year since we launched our Carbon Reduction Strategy. I encourage you to spend a moment taking stock and look at how far we have come in a year- there have been some really brilliant achievements. We would also like to use this opportunity to encourage you to keep telling us about your news, what's been going well, have you learnt anything that other NHS organisations would benefit from? What are your plans and aspirations for the future. The bulletin is a great place to share some of this, and we know it's going on, we just need you to tell us, so we can tell others.
