Jonathan Ashworth responds to NHS England’s “Greener NHS” announcement

Jonathan Ashworth MP, Labour’s Shadow Health Secretary, responding to NHS England’s “Greener NHS” announcement, said:

“Climate change is one of the greatest threats we face and Labour has long called for the NHS to take climate change seriously, which is why I outlined plans for a Green New Deal for our NHS last year to reduce the NHS’s carbon footprint.

“These are welcome steps from NHS England but we will need to go further and faster in the future to reduce the NHS’s carbon emissions.”
