On 22nd April 2021, Mill Road Surgery are formally declaring a climate emergency, joining many other organisations around the world that have already made this declaration. For the last year the NHS has been responding to the Covid19 pandemic and we recognise the link between this and the climate and ecological emergency.
This declaration is being made as part of Earth Day, a day where people across the globe come together to show their support for environmental protection.
This declaration means that we acknowledge the climate crisis which threatens population health, and commit to reduction of our carbon emissions in line with the Net-Zero NHS targets.
