Our Air Pollution & Air Quality Training Sessions, developed with clean air charity Global Action Plan, are specifically designed for healthcare professionals committed to expanding their practice beyond the clinic.  This initiative is part of the Air Quality Project, funded by the Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs (DEFRA), focusing on the crucial area of North East London.

  2. Identify the Culprits: Explore the diverse sources of air pollution affecting our communities and the wider UK.
  3. Assess the Impact: Gain a broader perspective on how air pollution alters the societal fabric, both in the UK and globally.
