Green Impact Programme shortlisted at the 2014 Health Service Journal Value in Healthcare Awards


Our Green Impact Programme has been shortlisted in the Energy Efficiency category at the 2014 Health Service Journal (HSJ) Value in Healthcare Awards, to be held on the 23rd September at the Grosvenor House Hotel, London.

On the 30th June, staff from the Estates and Facilities team will complete presentations and interviews to a specific judging panel made up senior and influential figures from the health sector.  These include:

  • Charles Alessi, Chairman, National Association of Primary Care
  • Professor Jonathan Kay, Clinical Informatics Director, NHS England
  • Val Moore, Implementation Programme Director, NICE
  • Michael Macdonnell, Head of Strategy, NHS England

The Green Impact model was developed by the NUS (National Union of Students) and involves staff working in teams on a series of simple and manageable tasks to improve the sustainability of their own work area or department. The programme covers areas including energy, water, waste, sustainable travel, procurement and communicating sustainability.

The new HSJ Value in Healthcare Awards seek to recognise and reward outstanding efficiency and improvement by the NHS. A successor to the HSJ Efficiency Awards, the Value in Healthcare Awards continue to recognise excellent use of resources. But they also seek out examples of demonstrable improvement in outcomes, both within back office functions and clinical initiatives.

Claire Igoe, Sustainability and Energy Manager, said: "I was delighted to hear that the Green Impact programme has been shortlisted for the prestigious HSJ Value in Healthcare Awards. Staff teams have been working hard to 'green' the Trust from within their own departments and it's fantastic that this programme has been recognised on a national level for its innovative approach in saving money and carbon".
