Sustainability Team plant roots for greener future

Liverpool University Hospitals is working with the Centre for Sustainable Healthcare (CSH) to improve its carbon footprint and provide recreational areas that will aid staff and community health and wellbeing.

Liverpool is one of three pilot cities that will have Nature Recovery Rangers, who will be working on green space conservation and restoration projects. We are one of 200 health sites across the country that is part of the CSH Green Space for Health Programme, having collectively planted more than 65,000 trees.

Ian Stenton, Head of Sustainability, said: "We’re delighted to be part of this collaborative programme with the Centre for Sustainable Healthcare. We’ve worked with them over a number of years and look forward to learning more from other NHS partners about how to best use green space for the benefit of our patients, staff and local communities. Having access to a qualified ranger will allow us to build upon our existing green space engagement projects and ensure that we create a lasting legacy of empowered groups who utilise our green assets to the maximum."
