The Master Class organised by “Health Proc Europe” in Zeist (NL) was an opportunity to strengthen the links between hospitals and procurement. This “obvious” partnership needs to be reinforced to improve the overall provision of care – efficiency and professionalism – but also to think jointly about environmental issues.
We were pleased to contribute to this event which brought together international players, particularly on the sustainability session which involved strong collaboration. All the participants concerned with this issue recalled the high stakes involved and have already committed themselves to policies designed to reduce the negative effects. Much remains to be done, but the way is paved, and we have to work together with industrial partners and suppliers to achieve this collective goal of reducing the environmental risks associated with health services.
