The event

This event is split into two halves, as follows:

The morning workshop is for NHS and Hospital Estates Managers and will include the launch of the new West Midlands NHS Sustainability Network. The main focus will be on ensuring we can manage hospital overheating in light of an ageing building stock and a changing climate.  Presentations will including the impacts of overheating on patient care, along with methods to help manage overheating in hospital buildings.

The afternoon workshop is for Public Health practitioners from local authorities, CCGs, Health & Wellbeing Boards and elsewhere.  It will focus on climate change adaptation and resilience and the benefits of embedding this into H&WB strategies and day to day operations.  It will also include the impacts of air pollution, increasing as a result of climate change, and the role that green infrastructure can play.  This event will also mark the official launch of the new West Midlands Sustainability and Public Health Network.

Both workshops will contain interactive sessions and opportunities for networking.

An agenda for both workshops is available here.
