Greener NHS… *NEW

Climate change threatens the foundations of good health, with direct and immediate consequences for our patients, the public and the NHS.

As a proud part of the NHS bodies that make up the Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership, we jointly declared a Climate Emergency in August 2019

Our Green Plan describes how we are responding directly to the health emergency that climate change represents, demonstrates the progress we’ve made despite the challenges of the pandemic, and describes the actions we will take in relation to carbon, waste, procurement and biodiversity to deliver a net zero NCA by 2040.

Every decision we take, Every choice we make, 

Contributes to delivering Net Zero Carbon
