Green Impact for Health 


Green Impact Award

We are pleased to announce we have been presented with a Green Impact Silver Award for our contributions to the NHS Greener Plan.

This practice is delighted to be signed up to the Green Impact for Health toolkit and is actively taking steps to reduce our carbon footprint.

The climate emergency is also a health emergency, and healthcare in the UK contributed to 5.4% of the UK's carbon emissions. We need to enhance the health of our current population without compromising the health of future generations and this means operating within the sustainable boundaries of the planet.

Fortunately, most of the solutions for the planet also make our health better - for example eating mainly a plant based diet, engaging in active travel and exercise in nature, avoiding smoking and reducing pollution all enhance our health and reduce our need for medications, with further benefits to the NHS, your health and the carbon footprint of healthcare.
