Green Impact for Health
We are pleased to announce that Minchinhampton Surgery has now been awarded a “Bronze” certificate by the Green Impact for Health initiative in November 2023. The initiative has helped our practice become more environmentally friendly, introduced sustainable practices, and reduced our carbon emissions and plastic waste.

Why is this needed?
Climate change poses a major threat to our health as well as our planet – we are currently experiencing a climate emergency. The environment is changing, that change is accelerating, and this has direct and immediate consequences for our patients, the public and the NHS.
