Route map for sustainable health

The Route map for sustainable health, recently published by the NHS Sustainable Development Unit (SDU), describes a sustainable health system and the components that are needed to achieve it.

The Route map identifies the areas that require progress in order to save money and resources, improve health and make changes future proof.

The NHS SDU works collaboratively with key partners to support policy direction, recommend research and convene leaders to address opportunities and barriers in the system. It has published many tools to support improved commissioning, procurement, leadership and staff engagement in sustainable services.
