Corporate Author:
Department of Health. Estates and Facilities Division

The purpose of this guidance is to help NHS organisations identify best practice in car-park management and sustainable transport in order to improve the patient and visitor experience and support staff on their journeys to and from work. The guidance identifies how the NHS patient, visitor and staff car parking principles can be implemented within an NHS organisation's carparking provision and what measures need to be considered when developing strategies and policies. The guidance contains a number of measures that have been used by NHS organisations to educe the demand on parking and promote better use of car-parks on NHS sites. These measures have been broken down into the following three categories: sustainable transport; car-park management; car-park equipment.

Energy: shared interest in sustainable development and energy services.

Social determinants of health sectoral briefing series 5.
Corporate Author:
World Health Organization

Energy is a resource that connects economic growth, social equity and sustainable environment. Development is not possible without sustainable energy. It plays a critical role in society, affecting the economy, international trade, national security, and the human and physical environment. Energy policy is a basic condition for economic and industrial development; it is equally critical for health. However, we are living in a world where millions of people still live without a reliable source of energy in spite of modern technology. Ensuring universal and sustainable access to modern energy sources for all is therefore another development imperative that plays a crucial role in effectively reducing poverty and providing health for all. This briefing describes the energy sector, its public policy challenges, how the sectors tries to address these challenges, and areas for potential collaboration between health and energy

Guidelines on neonatal seizures.

Corporate Author:
World Health Organization

Neonatal seizures represent one of the most frequent neurological events in newborn infants, often reflecting a variety of different pre-, peri-, or postnatal disorders of the central nervous system (CNS). They are also a common manifestation of metabolic abnormality in newborn period and often represent the first sign of neurological dysfunction in neonates. They may be symptomatic or cryptogenic, herald subsequent epilepsy, can be associated with potential morbidity and mortality, and may be used as a factor in considering long-term prognosis. Despite the enormous clinical significance of these events, many aspects of their management are not well supported with evidence- based recommendations. These guidelines are intended to be of use for neonatologists, paediatric neurologists, paediatricians, general practitioners, nurse practitioners, nurses and other health professionals who may be in contact with infants experiencing seizures within the first 28 days of life (age up to 44 weeks post-conception). The guidelines are framed so as to be applied by health care providers practicing in a wide range of health care facilities, from those with limited resources to tertiary care centres.
