Finger flicking good!

The Switch Off Squad - led by legendary "Dump It Don - have been out and about and making an impact.

Our hit estates' team in distinctive yellow T-shirts is touring our wards and departments and looking for where potential savings can be made.

We aim to cut our utility bills by £100k by Christmas. If we all do a simple switch-off then that can lead to a big bills saving. For example:

* One fluorescent tube unit left on overnight uses £1 of energy per week, so multiply that by 1000 in a large hospital..... and it's getting expensive.

* Air conditioning should be off now. If left on it's fighting heating at this time of year and that's a waste. 

* Air conditioning a conference room costs £21 over a weekend.
