As a forward-thinking organisation, The Christie is committed to sustainable healthcare. There are a number of ways we plan to do this, including:
- reducing our environmental impact,
- empowering staff,
- enhancing social value, and
- collaborating with our stakeholders to generate the best health and quality of life for all who live and work within the communities we serve.
We will also look at adapting how we deliver services, health promotion, more prevention, corporate social responsibility and developing more sustainable models of care.
Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership, of which The Christie is a member, declared a climate emergency in August 2019. This is based on the principle that the climate emergency is a health emergency.
In October 2020, NHS England published Delivering a ‘Net Zero’ National Health Service. In response to this, the Trust has developed an updated Sustainable Development Management Plan (SDMP) with the aims of Delivering a ‘Net Zero’ National Health Service. The SDMP outlines the Trust rationale, aims, objectives, plans and priorities for improving local, national and global sustainability.
