100% Recycled Dignity Shorts


The NHS accounts for 5.4% of UK carbon dioxide emissions – equating to 39% of all public sector emissions in England. Endoscopy appears to be a major contributor to the UK’s carbon footprint, generating on average 3.09kg of waste per bed per day, making this department the third highest emitting hospital department.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) has placed sustainability at the centre of their strategy, and at GI UK Medical, we believe the gastroenterology community should be a part of this movement. We must reinvent endoscopy with a view to protecting the planet on which we rely!
