The NHS Sustainability Roadshow was in London on the 25th February for the latest in a series of five events leading up to the big day.
Jan Ponsford presented the case study of the Energy Sustainability Project that Virtus have led for Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust.

This is a notable achievement, but with even steeper reductions to be delivered in the next five years, there has never been a better time for NHS Managers to fully take control of their energy demand.
