A long read but NHS England.  Click on the link below, for the full post and links.
CHS supports TT, occasionally we share their stuff! They like ours and certainly they can be considered part of a National Transition Towns movement.

CSH Newsletter 93 – December 2020

Some highlights!

“2020 has certainly been a year for the books. From devastating bushfires to police brutality and, of course, the direct and many indirect health effects of the global pandemic. Good has come out of the bad: demand for environmental and social justice including Black Lives Matter and linking these two issues to begin to build greater understanding of embedded inequalities; ramping up of commitments to net zero carbon emissions worldwide and an appreciation of the importance of greenspace during periods of lockdown. ”

The England NHS has shown fantastic leadership this year, being the first national health service to make a net zero commitment.

To finish the year, in December we were successful in receiving funding from the Government’s Green Recovery Challenge Fund to expand our Green Space for Health Programme. This will allow us to increase tree planting across NHS sites as part of theNHS Forest and grow skills in this area, embed Nature Recovery Rangers at three NHS sites and train up apprentices working alongside them.

Green Walking in Mental Health Recovery

In May, we launched ‘Green Walking in Mental Health Recovery’, a national initiative for adult psychiatric inpatients to improve their access to green spaces and increase their physical activity.

BeeHealthy Plant Borders:

In collaboration with the Trust for Oxfordshire’s Environment and Wild Oxfordshire we developed the Bee Healthy Project which helped GP surgeries create plant borders with nectar-rich herbaceous perennials, providing food to bumblebees and other pollinators

Addressing “hot topics” in sustainable healthcare

This year, we were awarded funding through Q by the Health Foundation, and NHS England and NHS Improvement to launch a series of 4 virtual events addressing hot topics in sustainable healthcare.
