With a turnover of £1.25 billion and a workforce of 15,000, Barts Health is the largest NHS Trust in the country, and one of Britain’s leading healthcare providers. Its aim is to be the most sustainable Trust in the UK by 2020.
The NHS Trust joined the ground breaking AquaFund grant scheme when it was awarded a substantial grant from the multi-million-pound fund. Under the AquaFund grant scheme, supplied by water management specialists ADSM, the Hospital Trust was provided with everything necessary to make their water efficiencies and financial savings, including; the full grant, consultancy services, site audits and state-of-the-art water saving technologies, together with water data and tariff analysis, bill validation services and on-going monitoring.
In addition to the water consumption savings, the Trust particularly liked the scheme’s interface and support of WaterAid. The Fund donates 1% of all its revenue directly to the charity WaterAid, so Barts Health is helping this charity while also saving water. The success of the partnership between the Trust and ADSM is reflected in the level of savings achieved to date.
