Trust wins £3.75m Funding

Peterborough City Hospital is to become a more energy efficient building thanks to a £3.75m funding award that will see it switch all lighting to LED bulbs.

The proposal will see 15,765 bulbs throughout the hospital switched to the lower energy, longer-lasting LED bulbs. This will halve lighting energy costs and carbon dioxide emissions – saving money and the environment.

The Trust’s Estates and Facilities Team applied to the NHS National Energy Efficiency fund with their LED lighting proposal and were awarded their full funding request to purchase and install the bulbs.

David Moss, Director of Estates and Facilities for the Trust that runs Peterborough City, Hinchingbrooke and Stamford and Rutland Hospitals, said: “We are really excited to have been awarded the funding for this project. It will enable us to significantly reduce our carbon footprint and our energy bills.

“This is the first major project in our green plan for all our hospital sites. As we redevelop our Stamford and Hinchingbrooke sites over the next few years, we plan switch to LED lighting there, too.

“We are working with our staff to look at other ways to save energy without impacting upon the care and experience of our patients. Our aspiration is to head towards net zero in line with the NHS as a whole.”
