Environmental sustainability in the NHS – is this possible? 

Dr David McKelvey, NHS Greater Manchester Integrated Care Clinical Lead in Sustainability in Primary Care   

Outline of talk:

The escalating impacts on health of the Climate and Ecological Crisis are becoming more visible with each report of another severe weather event.  The moral and health imperative to reduce emissions is clear.  Health services account for about 5% of the UK’s emissions and the NHS has an ambition to be net zero for emissions in its control by 2040 and by 2045 for those in its supply chains.  Sounds good, but is that enough, too much, or barking up the wrong tree?
