On May 6th, 2014, the HSE’s National Healthcare Sustainability Office (NHSO) ran a very successful National Seminar on Sustainable Health Systems. The well attended seminar, held in Connolly Hospital Blanchardstown, explored how all healthcare staff have a role to play in creating a sustainable healthcare service. The seminar also showcased the work already being carried out by the HSE and by health systems across the UK and Europe.

The NHSO has released some videos discussing what is involved in sustainability in healthcare and these can be viewed on the HSE YouTube channel.

Keep an eye on the HSE website in the coming weeks for the presentations from the seminar speakers, to give you more ideas on how to implement sustainability in your healthcare facility. Greenhealthcare will also make a link to these very useful presentations.
