cpvs
151200, 151300, 151500, 191300

Zero Waste Scotland wishes to understand the impacts, both positive and negative, that increasing resource efficiency can have on the health and well-being of those individuals who use healthcare facilities on a regular basis. Specifically, to identify where changes to building services (e.g. heating, lighting, ventilation, etc.), waste or water management within a facility have resulted in improvements (or otherwise) to the health and well-being of staff, patients and visitors. The purpose of this tender is to undertake a literature review of the impacts of improved resource efficiency in healthcare facilities on the health and well-being of staff, patients and visitors, to better understand the following: 1) Instances where health impacts have resulted either directly or indirectly from resource efficiency interventions at healthcare facilities; 2) The economic value and cost effectiveness of these interventions; 3) Barriers and impediments to implementation and/or replication at other sites; and 4) Knowledge gaps that require further research and investigation. The review should provide a comprehensive summary of the background to current knowledge and understanding of the health impacts and implications of resource efficiency, and should explore evidence of the effectiveness of interventions and any related behavioural change elements. The review should result in the analysis, synthesis and reporting of findings, presented in a broad and unbiased manner. This summary will contain information on the acceptability of the intervention by staff, patients and visitors. A final report will be produced to a publishable standard highlighting the parameters specified and inclusive of an Executive Summary, an overview of the boundaries and methodology adopted, the main body of text, and a conclusion. Up to ten weeks has been allowed for the activity to be completed, although a variance to this timeline may be granted where a valid case is made for extension.
