NHS Lothian Sustainability Webinar: Grounds for Health – improving the NHS Lothian estate for people and wildlife.
Join us on Thursday 29th September 2022 1pm – 2pm for the next NHS Lothian Sustainability Webinar: Grounds for Health – improving the NHS Lothian estate for people and wildlife.
Around 46% of the NHS Lothian estate is greenspace, this amounts to nearly 81 hectares (or rugby pitches) of gardens, grass and trees. If managed well these natural areas can capture carbon, clean the air of pollution and provide homes for wildlife. When they are well used, they can improve the lives of NHS patients, staff and communities in a multitude of ways that can be measured in better health and wellbeing.
This webinar is your chance to hear about some of the progress that has been made to improve the grounds and gardens and connecting people to nature. We will share our experiences of the impact of our work and the opportunities for the future.
Speakers will include:
- Ian Mackenzie, Greenspace and Health Programme Manager, NHS Lothian Charity
- Hannah Macrae, Service Manager – Cyrenians Community Gardens
- Jim Scott, Grounds and Gardens Supervisor, Western General Hospital
- Becky Brazil (she / her), Royal Edinburgh Hospital Arts & Greenspace Manager
