Green Impact for Health Scheme

Cleevelands Medical Centre has committed to the Green Impact for Health Scheme which has been set up to accredit practices who are aiming to reduce our impact on the environment and work in a more sustainable way.

This successful scheme has been set up by the National Union of Students and has been running since 2006, but has been expanded in recent years to include primary care.

We use an online system targeting energy use, waste disposal, water usage, procurement, prescribing and travel, with points awarded for achievements in reducing our impact on the environment. These achievements are recognised with Bronze, Silver and Gold awards which we are currently working towards.

Our practice is aware of the importance of working in a greener way to ensure that we leave the planet in good condition for future generations and by joining this national scheme, we hope we can continue to make positive changes.
