The NHS sustainable development plan outlines the commitments and ambitions in meeting the diverse needs of people in existing and future communities, promoting personal well-being, social cohesion and inclusion, and creating equal opportunity.
At its core is an approach to development that looks to balance different needs against an awareness of the environmental, social and economic limitations we face as a society.
Having a sustainable development management plan (SDMP) in place will support Boroughbury Medical Centre in identifying its sustainable development objectives and how they will achieve the set objectives effectively
SUMMARY: The SDMP is an extremely useful tool that enables Boroughbury Medical Centre to demonstrate its commitment to sustainable development, not only to our patient group but to the wider community and the wider NHS. If the objectives of the SDMP are to be achieved, regular reviews and measurements are required to determine the effectiveness of the plan, enabling changes to be made to enhance performance.
