CONGRESS 2023 - Embedding sustainability in the clinical laboratory - partnerships, Point-of-Care Testing and Getting It Right First Time

As the climate health crisis continues to escalate, governments and key NHS leaders are recognising the need for change. There is growing sector awareness of the impact of the lab on the environment and it is now time for laboratory medicine to consider the role POCT can play in achieving NHS net zero carbon targets. Centres for Sustainable Healthcare propose four principles for sustainable healthcare: prevention, patient self-care, lean service delivery and low carbon alternatives. This presentation considers the role GIRFT and POCT can have, in supporting these principles of sustainable healthcare and promoting greener diagnostic pathways.
