University Hospitals of Derby and Burton NHS Foundation Trust
University Hospitals of Derby and Burton has introduced a number of different initiatives to help patients, visitors and staff to travel green around its hospitals. These include incentives for staff that car share or choose to walk and cycle to work, rather than drive, and the installation of e‐Bikes at the Royal Derby Hospital. The trust’s Travel Plan, which last year won the Transport and Travel Award at the NHS Sustainability Award, is updated each year to inform people of the most effective and efficient ways of travelling between the Trust’s hospitals, whilst giving a breakdown of how staff currently make their way to work. The Trust only offers Ultra Low Emission Vehicles on its lease car schemes, has several on‐site charging pointsand has allocated Clean Air Zones around all of them.

2014 Winner

St Helens and Knowsley Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust

St Helens Hospital has taken steps to improve the visitor and staff car parking experience and to help create a more sustainable, user-friendly parking regime. The system uses a new IP-based operating system architecture that enables it to simply and directly connect with multiple technologies being deployed in hospitals and their car parks both now and in the future. This technology has cash and card handling options and can accommodate newer payment technologies in addition to barcoded tickets, staffsmart cards and automatic number plate recognition (ANPR). It offers a streamlined, regular parking service to patients, visitors and staff, and frees up parking staff to perform vital tasks. The ability to integrate control of the St Helens Hospital parking with the future parking needs of Trust was a key consideration.
