Funding From The Naturesave Trust
Penryn Surgery have enhanced their collection of re-usable equipment with the purchase of four sets of instruments for use in their coil fitting and removal clinics. These have been provided with a generous grant from the Naturesave Trust.
Dr Christine Dunne said ‘Having enough equipment that can be sent for sterilization after each procedure, makes a huge impact reducing the amount of single-use plastic we use in our weekly clinics. These instruments replace plastic items that had to be disposed of after each patient and were not in keeping with our ‘Greener Practice’ aims and policy.’
The Practice has achieved their ‘Gold Award‘ in the Green Impact for Health Scheme. This scheme is part of the United Nations award-winning Green Impact programme designed to support environmentally and socially sustainable practice within organisations. The toolkit is being used by over 1400 General Practices across the UK.

Autumn 2023 Flu Vaccinations
We don't want to wish the summer away but we're already looking ahead and planning our flu clinics which will take place in September.
Please don't call us, patients will be invited towards the end of August.
We invite eligible patients by text and email wherever possible, so please ensure we have your current mobile number and email address. Update them here
You will be able to book direct into the clinics from the link in your invitation.
Patients who don't have electronic contact details on record will receive a letter. However, in line with our Greener Practice values, we would prefer not to use more paper or carbon than necessary
We're a parkrun practice!
As part of our Active Practice Charter, we've joined with the Penryn campus parkrun to encourage our staff teams and our patients to take part in the weekly parkrun event on Saturday mornings.
