NHS amnesty for med­i­cal equip­ment

Yorkshire Post - - NEWS -

A crutch amnesty has been de­clared as part of plans to re­duce the car­bon foot­print of the NHS.

Walk­ing aids should be re­turned to hos­pi­tals in­stead of end­ing up in land­fill, Health Min­is­ter Steve Bar­clay said.

NHS staff are be­ing urged to ac­cept un­wanted med­i­cal equip­ment and reuse or re­cy­cle them where pos­si­ble.
