How-To Guides

how_toThe Green Healthcare Programme has produced three How To Guides, showing hospital staff how they can carry out waste prevention and resource efficiency activities themselves.

The Guides give advice on how a hospital or healthcare facility can set up a waste prevention/resource efficiency programme; how to carry out a total hospital food waste assessment; and how to undertake a detailed food waste survey of plated waste only.

The guides outline a step-by-step approach to all the required activities, providing clear assistance to hospital staff on how to save money and resources.
