Greener Practice North London is a community of healthcare workers brought together by our principle aim to make local primary care systems more environmentally sustainable. We meet every 6 weeks and also have an active WhatsApp group to share ideas, resources and learn from each other. We also work closely with the South London group and often have shared meetings. We hope to cultivate an inclusive and innovative environment for anyone interested in this field with absolutely no prior experience or minimum level of engagement required.
