Senior Net Zero Delivery Lead, Greener NHS Programme, NHS England

Sarah Ouanhnon is a Senior Net Zero Delivery Lead in the Greener NHS Programme at NHS England and NHS Improvement.

Passionate about making a positive difference to people’s lives, Sarah has led a variety of large-scale change programmes to optimise delivery of care in primary, acute and community care settings. Building on her expertise in population health management, she has also helped support the design of more integrated care across settings. For the past 10 years Sarah has worked for a range of organisations within care provision, the pharmaceutical industry and consulting, in the UK and the French healthcare systems.

Keen to address the threat that climate change poses to population health and to tackle growing health inequalities, Sarah joined the Greener NHS programme, where she leads the delivery of the NHS net zero commitment across Medicines, Supply Chain and Food. Her recent work includes the implementation of the first incentive scheme to encourage more sustainable practice for inhaler prescribing, and the publication of the NHS Supplier Roadmap, outlining requirements of NHS suppliers for the next ten years.
