Greener Allied Health Professional hub

As the third largest clinical workforce in the NHS, Allied Health Professionals (AHPs) play an important role in Delivering a Net Zero NHS.

The Greener AHP hub aims to provide:

  1. Information on the importance of environmental sustainability for both population health and the health of the environment.
  2. Examples of the ways in which AHPs are already doing things which improve environmental sustainability.
  3. Suggestions of how AHPs can contribute in relation to environmentally sustainable practice, digital, food and diet, use of equipment and public health and prevention.

This resource complements Delivering a Net Zero NHS and provides clear actionable steps which AHPs can take to improve their own environmental sustainability. It includes ‘what good looks like’ for individual AHPs and their teams, as well as wider examples demonstrating how AHPs can lead this work in their organisations.

Sustainability will remain a priority for AHPs going forward. The Greener AHP Hub marks the start of a journey, and these pages will continue to develop over time.
