NHS Sustainable Development Unit -
This research has calculated that the NHS and wider health sector could save up to £414m and cut one million tonnes of carbon emissions every year by 2020. The analysis selected 35 areas and calculated their financial and environmental benefits. This report outlines areas that offer potential cash savings and environmental benefits. These include providing mental health services to people being treated for physical health needs in hospitals, encouraging staff to travel to work by bike or foot and increasing use of technology for communication - for instance between staff and for patients with long term conditions.
