Sustainable procurement in the NHS

Written by Haydn Davis
Nurse

LONDON - The UK government has commissioned a study on how to procure sustainable clothing within the country’s National Health Service.

The project, launched by Defra, will investigate how staff uniforms can be procured in the public sector with a greater emphasis on sustainable development. The aims are to provide guidance in procurement exercises to deliver more cost effective solutions that do not compromise on quality or function, and to record and understand the impacts of procuring more sustainably.
