The impact of pollution on NHS services

Pollution has a major impact on NHS services in terms of costs and service demand but also in terms of patient outcomes.

We have been talking to the BANES Clinical Commissioning Group about the possibility of the becoming more proactive in campaigning for more funding for anti-pollution measures.

Following recent discussions we are now more helpful that they are shifting the view on this and will start gathering the financial and medical data they have to make the business case for increased funding to substantially reduce pollution in BANES.

Our discussions with BANES also suggest a willingness on their part to work with and encourage the NHS in this arena.
