The UK National Health Service Is World Leader in Sustainable Healthcare: Recommendations for Canada

Brett Duane


The National Health Service (NHS) in the UK is regarded by many as the world leader in sustainability. In this article, I present six main reasons for this. The first three reasons are that the UK passed appropriate legislation; a long-term strategy was developed; and a sustainability direction and delivery framework emerged for not only the NHS and the social system but also for its partner organizations in education. The UK has also committed resources, has a system of governance and accountability and continually reviews its current systems in a constant need for regeneration.
