NHS Nottingham City Local Climate Impacts Profile (LCLIP)

In 2007, NHS Nottingham City was the first Primary Care Trust in the UK to conduct a Local Climate Impacts Profile (LCLIP). The aim of the LCLIP was to identify how severe weather events had affected NHS services in and around Nottingham in the last 10 years. The LCLIP was updated in 2009, to take account of recent policy developments. The aim of the project was to help NHS services in Nottingham move from a reactive approach to responding to severe weather, towards proactive adaptation to build resilience to cope with the likelihood of increasingly frequent severe weather events. The main impacts identified though interviews were:

  • transport disruptions
  • school closures (leading to staff taking time off work to care for their children)
  • increased workload
  • indoor temperatures becoming too hot, and damage to buildings e.g. from storms
  • costs (though exact amounts were not specified)
