Solutions to air pollution also have potential wider benefits to our health, as active travel reduces risk of heart disease, stroke, cancer, diabetes and mental ill health.
We have a range of resources and tools to help individuals and organisations across the health sector take action on air pollution.
"Together, the health sector can make a real difference to the lives of millions."
- Professor Stephen Holgate
ICS Clean Air Framework
The ICS Clean Air Framework is freely available for an ICS to use to enable healthcare leaders to pursue action on cleaner air and secure a healthier future for their region. The Framework can be used as the basis of a Clean Air Strategy for an ICS working to improve their own emissions and reduce the effects of air pollution on the population.
Clean Air Hospital Framework
The Clean Air Hospital Framework is a free resource being used by hospitals across the UK to clean up their air. It is a self-assessment tool designed to improve air quality across the hospital site, and in the local community.
The Islington Primary Care for Clean Air Project
We’re working with health professionals in GP surgeries across Islington to help them share information on air pollution with their patients.
