NHS staff, patients and the local community all have key roles to play in the NHS Forest project.
The NHS Forest is a project coordinated by the charity, the Centre for Sustainable Healthcare. Funded by charitable trusts, corporate and individual sponsorship, the project’s central aims are to:
- improve the health and wellbeing of staff, patients and communities through increasing access to green space on or near to NHS land
- encourage greater social cohesion between NHS sites and the local communities around them
- spark projects that bring together professionals and volunteers to use new and existing woodland for art, food crops, reflective or exercise spaces and to encourage biodiversity
