SHIL Sustainability Innovation Call
Scottish Health Innovations Ltd (SHIL) is seeking sustainable, forward-thinking ideas from health and social care professionals that can help support NHS Scotland to adapt, develop and strengthen in response to climate change.
With NHS Scotland also committing to be a ‘net-zero’ greenhouse gas emissions organisation by 2045 at the latest, significant work is undoubtedly required. The behaviours of NHS Scotland’s 160,000-strong workforce will influence how the service mitigates and adapts to climate change impacts; and so, encouraging this diverse workforce to come up with new ways of working is vital and is at the heart of the latest Scottish Health Innovations Ltd (SHIL) innovation call.
All ideas are welcomed – from simple to complex, from all disciplines and any member of staff. Ideas fitting the green and sustainable theme may range from ‘Multiplex’ devices, such as waste-reducing lateral flow tests with more than just one channel, to new ideas for greener packaging which can be composted or recycled rather than sent to landfill.
