Harnessing the potential of our Natural Health Service
We are increasingly recognising the important role of greenspace and green health activities on our health and wellbeing. In fact, greenspace is often now described as our natural health service.
Through our Green Health programme, we work in partnership with NHS Lothian to make the most of our estate and community greenspaces as health assets.
NHS Lothian published the first health board led Greenspace and Health strategy in Scotland. The framework sets the priorities for how health and wellbeing can be supported through the NHS Lothian estate, publicly accessible greenspaces and green health activities. NHS Lothian Charity is working with a wide range of partners to deliver this vision.

As well as lots of practical information such as downloadable resources and useful links, our microsite also features Green Health project updates, latest news and upcoming events. So, if you have a passion for improving health and wellbeing, and climate resilience through Green Health initiatives, then this site is for you.
