Environmentally Sustainable Healthcare is our responsibility

Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh) and the Centre for Sustainable Healthcare developed an elearning resource for everyone in the healthcare workforce. The resource was designed to help learners feel confident in delivering healthcare for financial, social and environmental sustainability.

Learners from different healthcare backgrounds noted that the resource is a “really good, simple breakdown of key themes” and helps raise awareness “of the environmental impact of their occupation and realise that there are things we can do to change this”.
