Medway Community Healthcare (MCH) provides a wide range of high quality community health services for Medway residents; from health visitors and district nurses to speech and language therapists and out of hours urgent care.
Why is this important?
As part of the NHS family, we must meet the legal requirements set out in the Climate Change Act 2008 and deliver the targets set in the NHS Long term Plan. These include being net zero by 2040 for the emissions we control directly with an ambition to reach an 80% reduction by 2028 and being net zero by 2045 for the emissions we can influence with an ambition to reach an 80% reduction by 2036.
We at MCH need to embrace new ways of working in order to be able to achieve these targets. We need to meet our needs of today without compromising our ability to meet the needs of tomorrow.
