What is climate change? What is causing it? Why is it now an urgent issue for us all? As one of the world’s leading health services, planetary scale climate change is something the NHS cannot choose to ignore. Join us on a journey to explore the complexities of climate science and intricacies of global connectedness. Hear how our NHS is responding. Understand why we must lead in integrating sustainable practices into all that we do. Join the discussion and help shape the conversation on how we build our sustainable NHS.
