George Eustice supports NHS Sustainability Day
"It's immensely important that people in hospital for any length of time are given tasty and nutritious food. Our Government Buying Standard helps hospitals choose fresh, seasonable food that meets UK standards of animal welfare and sustainable fishing."
George Eustice MP - Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for farming, food and marine environment
Chris Packham supports NHS Sustainability Day
Believe it or not we are animals. Unfortunately we try to forget this but it's true and as such we retain just beneath our human veneer a very real need to be in a natural environment. Not only does it reward us with wildlife encounters it also is an indisputable asset to our health. Just being in a green space has huge and tangible mental and physical rewards. The NHS look after us superbly but we could look after ourselves so much better if we took more care of our natural environment and used it more frequently. So run, walk and explore your nearest patch of green and please ensure it survives to delight and heal for another day.

Cyrus Todiwala OBE Supports NHS Sustainability Day
Good nutrition is essential for good health. Using locally sourced, seasonal produce is not only great for your health, it's also great for the local economy and great for the environment. Get involved in NHS Sustainability Day and see the difference you can make.

Professor Norman S Williams Supports NHS Sustainability Day
NHS Sustainability Day is a key opportunity to reach out into the health service to press the need to deliver high quality surgical care that has a lower environmental impact and increased sustainability. I hope that this year’s events allow all those working in the health service to think about how we can make this a reality.

Duncan Selbie Supports NHS Sustainability Day
Assuring a sustainable health, public health and social care system is still one of our most important challenges, and we must continue to work hard to improve the quality of life for our communities. As healthcare professionals we must demonstrate that we are working to reduce our own impact on the environment as well as helping others to lead a healthy lifestyle. Taking part in NHS Sustainability Day is one way in which we can raise awareness and contribute to the creation of a more environmentally, financially and socially sustainable system
Chief Executive, Public Health England
Dr Dan Poulter, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Health Supports NHS Sustainability Day
It is widely recognised that climate change is a serious threat to everyone's health and wellbeing. We support the commitment of the NHS to promote sustainable action and development.
As the NHS is the largest group of organisations in the UK, it is vital that local NHS organisations come together to share best practice and lead the way in promoting innovation and sustainable development.
I wholeheartedly endorse NHS Sustainability Day 2014, and I look forward to this year and an even greater success in starting to reduce our carbon footprint and addressing climate change.
Dr Dan Poulter, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Health
Dr David Pencheon Supports NHS Sustainability Day
Sustainability Day provides another important opportunity to highlight the financial, social and environmental benefits from individuals and organisations taking action to improve sustainability across the health system. However big or small the change, showcasing the excellent work already undertaken can inspire and guide others to do likewise and help make a difference. We look forward to helping Sustainability Day 2014 reach out to staff, patients and communities.

Director, Sustainable Development Unit
Jonathon Porritt Supports NHS Sustainability Day
You hear some people arguing today that ‘sustainability has gone off the boil’. Difficult to imagine where these people get their information from, as every single aspect of sustainability that commands our attention today just gets more pressing. And the NHS has an extremely important role to play in rising to that challenge. By getting involved in NHS Sustainability Day, you can be part of that process, and help give the lie to those who tell us that we no longer have anything to worry about!
Founder Director, Forum for the Future
Prof. Hugh Montgomery Supports NHS Sustainability Day
Human health is damaged by lifestyles which also happen to damage our planet: the high consumption of red meat, our use of mechanised vehicles and our sedentary lifestyle, for example, all contribute to the development of stroke, heart attack, peripheral vascular disease, lung disease, cancers (e.g. breast and bowel), osteoporosis, and mild-moderate depression, while also driving climate change (methane from cattle, exhaust fumes from cars). This climate change directly threatens our ecosystems, as well as the health and lives of us and our children (through altered disease patterns, altered air quality, heatwaves, crop failure, migration and war.)
Meanwhile, the health service spends millons of pound each year in delaying death- often by a relatively short amount. None of this activity is sustainable or sensible. We thus all need to urgently adopt and advocate low-carbon lifestyles, for the good of ourselves, our children, our patients and our health service.

David Cameron Supports NHS Sustainability Day
The NHS Sustainability Day is a very important initiative that aligns with this Government's ambitions for a low-carbon and eco-friendly economy. I am encouraged by the scale of reduction in carbon the NHS is contributing towards the UK's target and the acknowledgement that there is more to do.
David Cameron, Prime Minister
