Cedars Medical Centre recognises the need for climate action. We aim to embed sustainability into the core of our healthcare practices to create a healthier environment and healthier people. We will begin our decarbonisation journey by participating in the 2022 Green Impact awards scheme.
The scheme lists a set of actions that staff can follow to improve our environmental performance, such as: promoting social prescribing, switching to low carbon-emitting inhalers and reducing office waste. We aim to achieve the bronze award and continue our journey with sustainability by challenging ourselves to attain silver or gold in the future.
You can join us to make the planet and yourself healthier by eating a mainly plant-based diet, engaging in active travel and exercise in nature, avoiding smoking and reducing pollution.
These measures enhance our health and reduce our need for medications, with further benefits to the NHS and the carbon footprint of healthcare.
