Wallington Family Practice is participating in the Royal College of GPs “Green Impact for Health Scheme”. This is a project which aims to improve the practice’s environmental performance.
Becoming more environmentally aware and sustainable is vital given what we now understand about the impact of climate change, but also in ensuring we are delivering the most effective and beneficial services for our patients.
We are currently working towards the Bronze Award, which includes supporting the use of fair-trade tea and coffee, reducing office waste by double sided printing, increasing awareness of the GSK inhaler recycling schemes and learning about social prescribing.
