Air pollution


Poor air quality is the largest environmental risk to public health in the UK.

As part of our green agenda we are raising awareness about air pollution for the health of our patients.

Air pollution kills approximately 7 million people prematurely worldwide, and up to 36,000 people prematurely in the UK.

Improve health and reduce air pollution

There are many ways that you can personally support reductions in air pollution and improve your health by reducing car use and choosing to walk, cycle or scoot if you are able.

If you would like to discuss any concerns you may have regarding air pollution and the impact on your health please book an appointment with one of our clinicians.
