Sustainable Primary Care

Tuesday, September 14, 2021 - 13:00 - 17:00

Those working in General Practice are trusted sources of information, educators, community members and run responsible small businesses. Sustainable changes often have huge co-benefits for patients and staff.  Primary care staff have the power to reduce their practice's environmental footprint whilst improving care quality. In this short 3-part course we offer an overview of the development of sustainable healthcare, share case studies of good practice, and provide tips and tricks for greening your practice.
