Poor air quality in the UK is an increasing health concern and is adding to the burden on the NHS.
Approximately 30 per cent of preventable deaths in England are due to non-communicable diseases specifically connected to air pollution. Unless air quality is improved, the health and social care costs of air pollution in England could reach £18.6 billion by 2035. If this issue matters to you, this is a must-attend session.

Discover how the North East and North Cumbria ICS, the UK’s leading sustainability ICS, has been
working with environmental change charity Global Action Plan and Boehringer Ingelheim to identify
opportunities to drive meaningful change around air quality improvement at hospitals and community healthcare access points.

Be the first to learn about how the ICS Clean Air Framework will inspire healthcare leaders to consider implementing air quality improvement measures in the future. The Integrated Care for Cleaner Air initiative aims to improve air quality around all healthcare access points and support every ICS in England to become a ‘Clean Air Champion.’

This panel session brings together key sustainability and health leaders to highlight the importance of implementing air quality improvement initiatives, to protect the people who visit hospitals most
