Our Members > Walsall Healthcare NHS Trust
Walsall Healthcare NHS Trust are a large trust operating in Walsall for a population of around 260,000 individuals.
SWM are delighted to welcome the trust as winners of our 2019 membership competition and look forward to working with them as they build on their sustainability agenda and look to reduce waste, all-the-while improving facilities and patient well-being.
The trust has a number of plans going forward including:
- Making patient bracelets biodegradable to improve disposal
- Linkage with Walsall Against Single Use Plastic (WASUP) to help reduce this waste
- Improvement to green spaces to give patients and families better places to sit and relax
- Improvements to training of staff to improve awareness of recycling
