Sustainability needs to be considered as a key aspect in all our clinical and decontamination units. There are many challenges to dealing with delivering sustainability in healthcare and dental practices from disposable single use items that could be reusable to the efficacy of decontamination and reuse on site. The current disposal of items across our industries is not sustainable and we need to change our practices to ensure that reuse and reduce are the principles to reduce waste. Yet, there are other considerations including infection control, the ongoing risk to patients as well procurement and transport to and from our places of work. Questions that we face include: What does sustainability mean to those working in the NHS? Is reusable PPE fit for purpose and value for money?  How do we integrate sustainability into the patient’s pathway?
