Carbon Net Zero: Journey to a Greener NHS
“Going forward, changes will require significant infrastructure, and an associated increase in carbon emissions. While energy efficiency is improving all the time, a rapid growth in data demand and digital equipment has the potential to add to these emissions unless we specify lower carbon digital products and services” NHS Green Plan, 2020
Decarbonisation is crucial to the NHS’ ambition to meet its 2040 carbon net zero target. With the NHS accounting for 4% of the UK’s carbon footprint annually, and 53% of NHS trusts behind on, or without decarbonisation targets, we will be holding a panel session to discuss the key drivers of this transformation, backed by extensive experience and world class R&D, in order to contribute to your individual plans and discover solutions to the challenges you face.
- Lisa Hollins, Director of Innovation, NHSX
- Matt Gardner, Head of Elective Care, NHSX
- Lauren Sugden, Healthcare & Life Sciences Decarbonisation Lead, Atos

Addressing digital inequalities in Healthcare
With high levels of digital exclusion and digital health literacy in people from deprived and excluded communities, how can we address the gap to move to a model of care designed for individuals, rather than the masses?
The pandemic has changed the way healthcare is delivered, but with remote healthcare and remote monitoring now commonplace, how can we solve the complexity and ambiguity that these systems present?
Join this webinar to discuss the challenges that the NHS face today, and what modifications can be made over the next 12-18 months through the implementation of digital technologies.
- Dr Bola Owolabi, Director of Health Inequalities, NHS England & NHS Improvement
- Inara Khan, Head of Innovation Delivery, NHSX
