St George’s University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust has been nominated for a Sustainable Cities Award.

The Trust was shortlisted in the Health and Wellbeing category following its work to promote ‘working environments and cultures which benefit the wellbeing of workers or citizens.’

The Sustainable City Awards recognise companies and organisations in London that demonstrate excellence in sustainable development.

The Awards, run by the London Sustainability Exchange and funded by the City of London Corporation, serve as a national ‘green business’ awards scheme that rewards the best examples of innovation and good practice to build a smarter, healthier and more environmentally friendly city.

Representatives of the Trust and our Health and Wellbeing Team will be attending the ceremony on the 5 July.

The nomination comes in the wake of two successful Staff Health and Wellbeing Days in May, held at both St George’s and Queen Mary’s Hospital. Hundreds of staff came through the doors on both days to take part in activities, have a health ‘MOT’ and learn more about how to lead a healthy lifestyle.

The Trust’s Health and Wellbeing Lead, Portia Weeks, commented: “The events were even more successful than I imagined with hundreds of people attending and getting a better understanding of the areas that support our staff with their wellbeing. A big thank you to all of the Health and Wellbeing champions and volunteers who gave their time to attend and make the event a success!”
