March the 26th was an brilliant success for sustainability in the NHS. There was such an overwhelming and positive response that we’d like to say a big thank you to everyone involved. Here’s a few of the great things that people have shared with the #dayforaction hash tag, unfortunately we couldn’t fit them all on the page!
Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
We planted 60 trees from NHS Forest with the help of our Project Search interns. This is the first step in creating a woodland walk where patients and staff can reap the health benefits of green spaces. Wooded green spaces reduce stress and improve patient recovery rates as well as sequester carbon.
