About Sustainability Day
What is it about?The annual NHS Sustainability Day is about celebrating the importance sustainable development plays within our national health services. Through this annual day, NHS and Health professionals can showcase how they are driving sustainability whilst celebrating their achievements and engaging with staff, patients and visitors. We encourage any organisation to get involved and provide free resources to help plan your day!
