GV Health Sponsors Conference on Sustainable Food Waste

GV Health is sponsoring the UK Healthcare Healthcare Waste and Resources Research (HCWRR) Group's 2017 conference on Sustainable Food Waste. The one day conference takes place on Thursday, October 5th 2017 at the Northamption Town Football Ground, Sixfields, Northampton.

It is expected to attract a wide range of participants from across the National Health Service (NHS), local government authorities, industry and environmental consultancies. The conference will focus on the sustainable management of food waste from the healthcare, hospitality and retail sectors.

The HCWRR Group is hosted by the University of Northampton. The Group, which began in 2007, is completely independent and aims to further evidence-based research into healthcare waste management for the benefit of the public purse, public health and for the environment as a whole.

The HCWRR is comprised of individuals working across the healthcare wastes and resources sector including from the NHS, private health providers, industry, academia, and environmental consultancies. Individuals within the Group have undertaken work in a range of areas from waste prevention, waste management and infection protection, communication, behaviour change, to evaluations of treatment technologies and waste infrastructure. HCWRR collaborates with a wide range of organisations including the Department of Health (DH), the National Performance and Advisory Group (NPAG) and the Chartered Institution of Wastes Management (CIWM).

GV Health is proud to sponsor this event and looks forward to meeting delegates. For more information about the event please contact your GV Health representative.
