The team at GOSH have been exploring the idea of a sustainable hospital with our patients. We have challenged them to think about what GOSH might look like in the future to help us create a piece of art to be unveiled in March. Here is a teaser!!6th February 2015
Joel Tardina, student nurse in Ward F3 says: "Thanks to Operation TLC we are now able to turn the lights off earlier which most patients prefer. Those who want to carry on reading can use their individual lights without disturbing others."19th December 2014
Student nurse Emma McMillan in Ward F8 talks about the new low energy LED strip lighting "It's just right at night. Staff and patients love it. We can read and write up our notes, and keep an eye on patients without disturbing their sleep."11th December 2014
In 2013 DECC installed a small, efficient, condensing gas boiler dedicated to heating domestic hot water. This allows us to mothball our two large boilers during summer months when they’re not required and is cutting around 60 tonnes of carbon p.a9th December 2014
It’s increasingly hard to identify cost effective energy and carbon saving measures in our energy efficient HQ. With the GLA’s RE:FIT programme we identified and installed measures which will save 303,596 kWhs of energy p/a or 159 tonnes of carbon9th December 2014
Our HQ has invested in a new lighting solution that’s estimated to save 183,596 kWhs annually. Combining LED technology with a flexible localised control system, lights automatically turn off in unoccupied rooms and dim in response to daylight levels9th December 2014
In the autumn half term, Thornhill Primary School was the first school in the authority to completely refurbish their lighting to LED via SALIX SEELS. This improved classroom light levels & is set to realise a whopping 74% lighting energy reduction!5th December 2014, Reposted 1 time
A-rated energy efficient screens that turn off out-of-hours are raising awareness of when & where lights can be switched off. Lights make up a significant portion of energy use at UK Parliament & people using the buildings want to help reduce this24th November 2014
Frimley Park Hospital has been listed as a Finalist in the HSJ Awards 2014 for Staff Engagement! Well done!21st November 2014
