Mile End Hospital in London, forms part of Barts Health NHS Trust, the largest NHS Trust in the UK serving a population of 2.5 million in East London and beyond. The aim of the Trust is to be the most sustainable Trust in the UK by 2020. At the heart of its strategic vision is the desire to make lasting and measurable change to those who live in East London and beyond.
The Trust’s hospitals are committed to reducing their environmental impact through investment in infrastructure, improved biodiversity, integrated behavioural change, active travel and adaptation planning, delivered through strategic partnerships. Within its communities, the Trust commits to tackling four core impact areas: reducing fuel poverty, improving air quality, sustainable growing, together with food and nutrition education.
As part of its ongoing commitment to sustainability, Mile End Hospital has become the first hospital in the UK to use Cheetah™ technology to make energy efficient savings.
Completely unique to the hospital marketplace, Cheetah™ is now installed in the main kitchen at the hospital, which is used to cook food for 13,783 staff, together with events throughout the year. The ventilation system from their main kitchen previously consumed a constant 40 kW, 24 hours per day and exhausted over 2m³/sec of conditioned air continuously into the atmosphere. The air conditioning system in the main kitchen incorporates a 4.0kW supply fan.
