Sustainable development addresses the wider environmental, social and economic causes of poor health and illness, to meet the needs of patients and the public. It’s about prevention rather than cure, by ensuring a better quality of life for everyone, now and for generations to come.
The activities of health and care organisations are investments in our future wellbeing. Board-level staff need to harness transformational change and embed good practice within their organisation to help create a truly sustainable health and care system.
