Vanbrugh Declares Climate Emergency

The climate emergency is also a health emergency, and health care in the UK contributes 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 a mainly plant-based diet, engaging in active travel and exercise in nature, avoiding smoking, reducing pollution etc all enhance our health and reduce our need for medications, with further benefits to the NHS, your health and the carbon footprint of healthcare.

We are delighted to be signed up to the Green Impact for Health Toolkit and are actively taking steps to reduce our carbon footprint.

Take a look at www.greenerpractice.co.uk to learn more about this.
