Joint call for evidence for NHS Net Zero Aseptic/Technical Services Initiatives from NHE England, PASG and Regional Quality Assurance.

Hello!

We are pleased to launch a joint call for evidence for NHS Net Zero Aseptic/Technical Services Initiatives from NHE England, PASG and Regional Quality Assurance.

The NHS has committed to deliver the world’s first net zero health service and respond to climate change, improving health now and for future generations. Aseptic Services teams provide a critical service, ensuring patients receive safe, efficacious prepared injectable medication; but this service is inherently high resource and energy intensive. The pathway to a more sustainable service also aligns with wider initiatives like reduction in waste, cheaper operating costs, and improved staff engagement.

This call for evidence seeks to understand work already being undertaken or planned within the system to reduce the environmental impacts of aseptic services, the level of understanding and engagement in Net Zero and any blockers to progress.

We aim to get good views from across the UK, NHS facilities and from different members from the team so please do cascade widely and to all members of the team.

Please review and respond to the call for evidence on the following link by 09:00 13th November 2023

Kind Regards,
