London’s Health and Social Care sector is a huge employer and estate-owner, and its services are one of our capital’s most vital resources. LCCP worked with health professionals and organisations to identify the risks and opportunities they faced from climate change, and helped them adapt accordingly.
The purpose of this project was to understand the London-specific climate issues for the health and social care sectors and map the responsibility for action onto the relevant parts of these sectors
• A better understanding of the key London-specific climate risks to Londoner’s health and health/social services’ delivery.
• An improved understanding of where responsibilities for adapting London’s health and social sector lie.
• An improved ability to mainstream adaptation into the business planning of the relevant organisations.
• A better understanding of risks that the hospital refurbishment programme and new commissioning of health services face and should address.
