Pioneer Medical Group is proud to be taking part in the Green Impact Awards this year. We are currently achieving the standards needed for a Silver Award and are moving toward Gold. This scheme aims to make general practice more sustainable, reducing our impact on the environment. The World Health Organisation has identified climate change as the biggest threat to global health in the 21st century, and as a leading healthcare provider it’s important that we lead by example.
What are we doing?
Solar panels on the roof at the Bradgate Site
Recycling bins at all sites
A 'switch it off' ethos for lights, screens, PCs etc. We audit this regularly.
Fair trade tea and coffee at all sites
Small steps can make a big difference. For example, did you know that you can recycle your inhalers? You can find your nearest pharmacy that recycles inhalers here. Boots in Shirehampton and Day Lewis in Henbury are the closest pharmacies to the Pioneer sites that offer inhaler recycling.
