NHS Sustainability Award Winners announced
Guys & St Thomas NHS Foundation Trust scooped the overall winner at this year’s NHS Sustainability Awards.
The NHS Sustainability Awards, announced at a ceremony in London on Thursday 17th May, celebrate healthcare efficiency and sustainable development in a year that has presented many challenges arising from financial cut backs to the NHS.
Other notable winners included Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust who implemented a £14.8 million-pound energy project which is producing £461,000 savings per year for the next twenty-five years. Alongside them were West Green Surgery, the GP centre were on hand to pick up the award for innovation following their extensive work to create a paperless system within the centre and wider region.
This year also marked the introduction of a new category, supplier of the year, which recognises the industry partners for whom provide value for money, support and guidance to the NHS. The award was won by Warp-It for their national support on reuse within the NHS which is delivering millions of pounds of savings per annum.
Discussing the winners, NHS Sustainability Day Campaign Manager, Scott Buckler said:
“The awards are now in their fifth year and I am continually impressed and surprised at how much leadership exists within the NHS. All our nominees, highly commended and winners have proven that sustainability is a key driver in ensuring we have an NHS fit for the future.
It is essential, as the NHS approaches its 70-year birthday, that we support those shortlisted and those across the country who work hard day and day out to deliver efficiency and drive savings which hold the key to delivering front-line spending and ensuring our national health service survives”
