NHS Sustainability Award Winners announced.

Guys & St Thomas NHS Foundation Trust scooped the overall winner at this year’s NHS Sustainability Awards.
The NHS Sustainability Awards, announced at a ceremony in London on Thursday 17th May, celebrate
healthcare efficiency and sustainable development in a year that has presented many challenges arising
from financial cut backs to the NHS.
Other notable winners included Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust who implemented a
£14.8 million-pound energy project which is producing £461,000 savings per year for the next twenty-
five years. Alongside them were West Green Surgery, the GP centre were on hand to pick up the award
for innovation following their extensive work to create a paperless system within the centre and wider
This year also marked the introduction of a new category, supplier of the year, which recognises the
industry partners for whom provide value for money, support and guidance to the NHS. The award was
won by Warp-It for their national support on reuse within the NHS which is delivering millions of pounds
of savings per annum.
Discussing the winners, NHS Sustainability Day Campaign Manager, Scott Buckler said:
“The awards are now in their fifth year and I am continually impressed and surprised at how much
leadership exists within the NHS. All our nominees, highly commended and winners have proven that
sustainability is a key driver in ensuring we have an NHS fit for the future.
It is essential, as the NHS approaches its 70-year birthday, that we support those shortlisted and those
across the country who work hard day and day out to deliver efficiency and drive savings which hold the
key to delivering front-line spending and ensuring our national health service survives”
The Awards are part of the NHS Sustainability Day Campaign and national day of action held each year.
