​Sustainability in NHS dentistry: a call for evidence

9 March 2020

 

The BDA is encouraging dentists and their teams to respond to the NHS call for evidence for ideas to enable a ‘Net Zero NHS’.

 

If you have ideas on how the NHS can reduce its carbon emissions more quickly, the NHS is calling for case studies, ideas and research, both established and emerging that enhances existing knowledge or helps identify new opportunities for greening the NHS – submit them online before Sunday 22 March.

 

Further information is also available by contacting greener.nhs@nhs.net.

 

We’d also like to hear about any projects you are working on, or case studies about sustainability in dentistry, please get in touch with us.

 

We have been taking a lead on the issue of sustainability in dentistry across the UK and we are working with key stakeholders to develop policy and supporting dental practices to overcome the barriers to becoming more sustainable - read our blogs on sustainability in dentistry.

 

The CSH's dental sustainability guide is free for all dental practices to use and aims to provide a framework for the issues that dentistry can tackle. It focuses on travel, equipment (procurement), energy, waste, biodiversity and green space and measuring and embedding sustainability.

 

Working for you

We campaign on a range of issues affecting dentists and dentistry today. We make sure that dentists' views are represented when it comes to health policy being developed by government and other key organisations.
