This report produced by the Kings’ Fund and the NHS Development Agency discusses the potential for the NHS to contribute as a good corporate citizen to local regeneration and sustainable development through its procurement, employment, capital build, transport and waste-management activities. It highlights general trends in these activities across the regions and provides an overview of the national policy context. It also explains how health sector policies are integrated with regional policies and describes the potential role the NHS could play in each region. The report is based on an analysis of documents from a variety of sources, particularly regional agencies, and interviews with policy makers and professionals in the regions, central government, NHS organisations and non-governmental organisations.Published by the Health Development Agency ISBN: 1842794116.
