This briefing sets out the key policy and operational drivers for a sustainable development approach to health and social care design and delivery for busy commissioners and health and wellbeing board members. This includes specific detail regarding climate change and other environmental issues, but also covers social and economic sustainability. Short case studies of good practice at a local level illustrate the gains for health, efficiency, risk management, reputation and legislative compliance.
