DCHS sustainability survey

Covid-19 has dramatically changed the way we work in the NHS.  Some people are now working from home for the first time, online rather than face-to-face meetings have become the norm, consultations and other clinical tasks are now being done via the internet or telephone and a lot of travel (particularly from non-front line services) has been stopped.  On the other hand the use of plastic and other non-recyclable materials has increased and some people’s health and wellbeing is being badly affected.

We are carrying out a survey aimed specifically at sustainability to involve you, our staff members, in helping us understand how we are performing currently and to help us form future policies and processes to create a more sustainable DCHS as we continue to move out of lockdown.

The survey will take about 20 minutes to complete and can be found at
