Yorkshire & Humber AHSN have been commissioned to deliver the Sheep Shed Green Award programme by Humber and North Yorkshire Health and Care Partnership. The awards are designed to promote sustainable practice within the Humber and North Yorkshire region and aim to help progress carbon reduction projects into action.
Of particular interest are clinical teams and innovators with solutions able to support the system to further develop the following areas including (but not limited to):
- Carbon reduction within healthcare
- Waste reduction
- Anaesthetic gas and Nitrous Oxide reduction
- Models of Care
- Greener primary care
- Climate Adaptation and health
Successful applicants will have an opportunity to support green projects and innovations within the Humber and North Yorkshire region. They will receive flexible support adapted to the needs of their project and have a chance to be introduced to NHS organisations to help understand the implementation of their project within the healthcare sector.
As part of the programme, there is total funding of £50,000 available to be split between all award winners. And candidates will work with NHS partners to support the delivery of their solution within the Humber and North Yorkshire healthcare sector.
