We are pleased to announce the practice has recently signed up to the national ‘Green Impact for Health’ scheme. This is a toolkit to help practices improve their sustainability. We feel this is a positive investment to the running of the practice as it is important to reduce waste and our impact on the environment. You may see modifications to the practice going on such as us changing to LED lights and other projects. We would also like to highlight our inhaler recycling scheme where further information about this is available at our dispensary.
We can all make changes to reduce our carbon footprint and we would like to invite you to help us do this by:
- informing us of your preferred local pharmacy (if you are not a dispensing patient) so we can send your prescriptions electronically which will reduce paper print outs
- inform us of your consent and confirm your mobile phone number is correct so we can send you text notifications to reduce letters
- checking your prescriptions carefully prior to requesting them to ensure only required medication is obtained to reduce medication wastage
- feeding back to us any ways you feel we could reduce wastage or improve sustainability that you identify during your experience with the practice
Thank you for your support with this, All at Mayford House
