Net Zero goal




A big thank you to Brighton and Hove City council for helping us towards our Net Zero goal

Mile Oak Medical Centre declared a climate emergency in October 2021 as we were concerned about Primary Care’s contribution to the climate crises; Primary Care contributes to 23% of the NHS’s carbon footprint.

We are therefore very grateful that Brighton and Hove City council have agreed to support us with grants from their Shared Prosperity Fund which are enabling us to convert our practice lighting to LED lights, and our single-use metal scissors and forceps along with our single-use plastic speculums to reusable, sterilisable metal equipment instead. They have also helped us on our journey to increase biodiversity with a grant to install disabled access which will enable us to convert our back garden into a therapeutic garden for the whole community.
