Event shows green side of city hospitals

An event this Thursday at University Hospitals Bristol will highlight the link between health and the environment.

The event, hosted by UH Bristol's Big Green Scheme, takes place in the tree-lined atrium of the Bristol Heart Institute on 25 September, from 10am to 2pm. Patients, visitors and the public are welcome to attend and find out more about UH Bristol's hospitals' green credentials, and what the Trust has planned to help further reduce its environmental impact.

The Big Green Scheme promotes lifestyle choices aimed at improving people's health and well-being. The scheme is also working to reduce the Trusts environmental impact across all areas including energy, transport and procurement.

The event will feature information and advice, samples and testers, freebies and promotions on all things green.

The event comes in the same week as UH Bristol's South West Green Energy Awards nomination, in the 'Most Proactive Public Body' category. The Trust was nominated for its recognition of strong links between a healthy environment and human health, as well as its various green energy projects at different stages, including solar panels on estate buildings, a sustainable behaviour campaign and a combined heat and power system.
