Reducing single-use plastics in the NHS

The chief nursing officer Ruth May has called on organisations to sign up to the NHS plastic reduction pledge.

“Across the NHS, nurses, midwives and other frontline staff are providing great leadership on environmental issues and championing sustainability where they work. Support from local NHS organisations to sign the pledge and cut use of catering plastics will need all NHS staff to take action in their own areas and encourage their employers to go further faster,” she said. The deadline to sign the pledge has been extended to Friday 20 December.
