NHS England has unveiled the “Care for the future: delivering the world’s first net zero health service” photography exhibition at the Herbert Art Gallery & Museum in Coventry.  The photography exhibition features NHS staff – from pharmacists to surgeons, mental health professionals to health visitors – who have pioneered greener healthcare initiatives for the benefit of their patients and the communities they serve.  A GP at Foleshill Health Centre in Coventry, features in this exhibition representing both primary care, the NHS Midlands region and sustainable NHS healthcare facilities.

Coventry, currently in the Year of Culture, is hosting the prestigious photo exhibition at the Herbert Art Gallery & Museum in the city centre. The exhibition is on display until 1 June, before it moves on to NHS Trusts across the country for the remainder of 2022.
