Under the adaptation reporting powers of the Climate Change Act, the Greener NHS programme has been invited by Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs to produce the Health and care adaptation reports on behalf of the sector.


The third Health and care adaptation report builds on the previous rounds of reporting and supports the NHS in continuing to deliver a climate-smart, resilient health service. The conclusions of this report will be used to inform human health and built environment components of the UK’s National Adaptation programme.


The second Health and care adaptation report outlines the risks resulting from climate change to the public’s health and to service delivery. It provides an overview of the health sector’s response and highlights a number of recommendations for the system to take forward.
