NHS Confederation

The NHS Confedederation has some great stuff on their website.

In February 2008, the Health Protection Agency and Department of Health published a report setting out the health effects of climate change. Responding, NHS Confederation chief executive, Gill Morgan, said rising temperatures will put significant pressure on the NHS and that the NHS is well placed to be at the heart of positive change. She said: 'There is already excellent work happening on the ground; the NHS is working hard to reduce its carbon footprint and engaging with organisations such as the Sustainable Development Commission to do so. As the UK's largest employer, the NHS can also help promote positive changes in attitude among its 1.3 million staff.'
