Help shape the health and care system

The consultation on the Sustainable Development Strategy for the Health, Public Health and Social Care System 2014 – 2020 is now open.

Throughout February the consultation has been raising awareness across the industry, so you may have already received information similar to this.

They are now seeking input from across the whole healthcare system, including NHS, Public Health, Social Care, CCG’s, Health and Wellbeing Boards, membership organisations and Local Authorities. This is your opportunity to help shape the future of a truly sustainable health and care system we can all be proud of.

The sustainable development strategy will be the development plan for the health, public health and social care sector from 2014 – 2020. It will build on the NHS Carbon Reduction Strategy (2009), outlining practical steps that need to be taken to move the health system further on the journey towards sustainable healthcare delivery.
