The Great British Workforce Revolution conference is the only live event in the UK focused on bringing hundreds of senior level executives together in one day and in one place, alongside the key influencers in the executive recruitment industry. Come along to hear from industry experts, gain educational insight, participate in exciting debates, enjoy quality networking and hear from some excellent keynote speakers.

This year will see the launch of the NHS Sustainable Development Unit’s carbon route map for 2014- 2020. Previous route maps have helped establish how the NHS can manage carbon reduction whilst promoting sustainability to patients and staff alike. They have been integral drivers in the challenge to make the NHS carbon free whilst acting as key indicators to the emergence of sustainable practices across Trusts, Hospitals and PCTs.

The Government announced on the 23 January 2013 that it is making available £50 million of capital in 2013-14 for NHS Trusts and Foundation Trusts, to fund new and innovative projects to improve energy efficiency and reduce the carbon footprint of the NHS by reducing energy usage, carbon emissions and improving resilience to climate change.

This funding will further support NHS organisations to deliver on the NHS Carbon Reduction Strategy for England of 2009 and 2010.

Defining the Priorities will examine the route map consultation and the direction that the NHS must take in the fight against rising CO2 emissions, whilst showcasing the work already being carried out by NHS organisations up and down the UK.

The cost to attend this key sustainable development conference is £995.00 - FULLY FUNDED (No cost) places are available to NEDworks members.
