Healthcare professionals from across Scotland met to discuss how prescribers can support NHS Scotland’s target to achieve net zero by 2040.

Royal Pharmaceutical Society (RPS) Scotland and the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges and Faculties in Scotland brought together healthcare leaders to discuss how everyone can work together to make prescribing more environmentally sustainable.

A representative of every healthcare profession that prescribes medicines was invited to the meeting, which included GPs, hospital doctors, pharmacists, nurses and other health professionals.

Medicines account for around a quarter of carbon emissions in the NHS.
