Climate Emergency Committment

As a way of taking responsibility as a practice towards the Climate Emergency, we have met with our allocated Climate Resilience Project Officer for North and East Cornwall, and will be taking relevant actions to reduce our carbon footprint. The first of these actions is to recognise that there is a Climate Emergency, and then let our patient community know we will be doing everything we can to be part of the solution. We are recognised as a Pioneer Practice for doing so.

One of the actions we have already taken has been to install a smart meter to monitor energy usage and guard against unnecessary or wasteful energy consumption. We are also encouraging our patients who use inhalers to consider dry powder alternatives where appropriate (although we recognise this may not be suitable for everyone). We’ll continue to keep our wildlife-friendly garden and aim to improve its biodiversity by planting good pollinators. We always recycle our general waste wherever possible.

We’d like to encourage our patients to join us by choosing environmentally-friendly options when shopping or gardening, for example. Please recycle your prescription packaging—after removing any personal information on it, return your used inhalers to the pharmacy and, if you want to know more about swopping to dry powder inhalers, please speak to our Clinical Pharmacist.
