Jubilee declares a climate emergency!

At Jubilee we are concerned about climate change and we're taking steps to address this. So far we've reduced the amount of paper we use. We are also making plans to change the way we are prescribing and our energy use.

There is lot's you can do as well. It might surprise you to know that inhalers are one of the biggest sources of green house gasses from the healthcare sector. Have a look at this information leaflet for more on what you can do if you use an inhaler.

Please also check out the greener practice website for more information and ideas.

Jubilee is fossil free

Jubilee uses electricity for all our heating and hot water. This doesn't mean we are carbon neutral, but as grid energy is increasingly generated from renewable sources it is a step in the right direction and reduces our environmental impact compared with a fossil alternative. 

Green Impact for Health Toolkit

Jubilee Medical Centre is delighted to be signed up to the Green Impact for Health Toolkit and is actively taking steps to reduce our carbon footprint.

The climate emergency is also a health emergency, and health care in the UK contributes 4-5% of the UK's carbon emissions. We need to enhance the health of today’s population without compromising the health of future generations, and this means operating within the sustainable boundaries of the planet. Fortunately, most of the solutions for the planet also make our health better - for example eating a mainly plant-based diet, engaging in active travel and exercise in nature, avoiding smoking, reducing pollution etc. These all enhance our health and reduce our need for medications, with further benefits to the NHS, your health and the carbon footprint of healthcare.
