New award for Greener Primary Care

Public Health Wales has announced the new Greener Primary Care Wales Framework and Award Scheme to help independent primary care providers to improve their environmental sustainability.

The framework is free to access online and consists of over 50 actions for practices to choose from. By taking part, you can join the growing group of practices which are making small but important changes for the climate. Participating practices say:

"In our practice, we have made genuine changes that we wouldn't have done unless we'd been nudged with the toolkit to do it."

"And it's not actually as difficult as it sounds. Most of being sustainable is making swaps for stuff that you're already doing."

Practices will be awarded bronze, silver or gold status based on the number of actions achieved.

Practices wishing to participate will have until October 2022 to complete actions and submit evidence for this year's cycle. Practices interested in taking up this new scheme can register today.
