Members of a national networking group for NHS sustainability leads set up by our National Performance Advisory Group (NPAG) recently took home several accolades in an awards ceremony.

Held at Imperial College, London, last month, the NHS Sustainability Awards celebrated healthcare efficiency and sustainable development in a year that has presented many challenges arising from financial cut backs.

Membership of the networking group, established in 2012, includes a number of high profile bodies and Central Manchester University Hospitals were named overall winner and were also successful in the Waste Management and Carbon categories. Founder members of the NPAG group, Newcastle Upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, picked an award for their extensive work to improve menus via sustainably and locally-sourced produce.

Other NPAG member winners included The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust and University College London Hospitals; Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust were highly commended in both the Innovation and Finance Categories and Shrewsbury and Telford were also highly commended for Leadership and making the Trust paperless.

The NPAG is a self-financed trading division of EEAST, offering a range of management services to both public and private sector clients. It facilitates best value groups (BVGs) covering a broad spectrum of subject matters of specific interest to NHS organisations, a variety of training workshops, and a comprehensive event management service, ranging from conferences, workshops, exhibitions and awards ceremonies. 

Liz McEwan, Head of Non-Emergency Services, said of the award wins: “It is really encouraging to see that members of this network are leading the way in sustainability, and that our very own commercial arm plays such a pivotal role in this.”
