Greener Practice

We have joined the Greener Practice Campaign in aims to become more of an active workplace to support climate change, person centred care, greener prescribing, natural based prescribing including social prescribing.

One Greener Project we have been working on is looking at all the outdoor activities that patients can get involved with in the area – parks, community gardening groups, park runs, walking trails etc.
We have made a google map showing them:

There is lots of evidence that getting active outdoors has a really positive impact on peoples physical and mental health – why not give it a go! Is there somewhere close by you would recommend to other patients? If so please let us know and we will add to our map.

 

Projects we have completed so far:

Recycling Scheme(s)

Greener Prescribing and switches in Inhalers

Cycle to Work Scheme

Minimising the amount of paper letters we send, instead using phone calls, texts or emails.

Switching our search engines to Ecosia (Ecosia – the search engine that plants trees) which plant trees when you use their search engine
