Sustainability is about providing high quality patient care today without compromising the care we provide tomorrow.
The 2012 NHS carbon footprint report shows procurement is responsible for 65% of all carbon consumed in the NHS. Procurement is based on clinical decisions, making Deaneries one of the most important organisations in supporting sustainable development in the NHS. With 2500 current trainees, the Severn Deanery is the perfect catalyst for sustainable change in the clinical setting. This can be achieved through sharing an understanding of embodied carbon, through encouraging innovative use of the resources needed to provide care, and through supporting our clinicians of tomorrow to develop the green agenda.
It's no wonder the Severn Deanery aims to be the leading Deanery in sustainability.
We are committed to sustainable development and to reducing the impact on the environment both in the office and in training our future medical workforce.
The Deanery has an energetic and devoted Green Team led by Dr Geoffrey Wright
