Greener Primary Care Wales Award Scheme

Penarth Eye Centre has been awarded a Silver Award by the Greener Primary Care Wales Framework and Award Scheme.

What does this mean?

Climate change affects us all and can have negative impacts on individual and population health. We all need to do our part to mitigate climate change, including primary care practices. In 2018/19 the carbon footprint of NHS Wales was approximately 1 million tonnes of CO2e, 2.6% of Wales’s total greenhouse gas emissions, the highest in the public sector.

The Greener Primary Care Wales Framework and Award Scheme from Public Health Wales has been designed to help independent primary care contractors (community optometry, general practice, community pharmacy and primary care dental practices) to improve the environmental sustainability of their day-to-day practice.

We are delighted to have received a Silver Award and are committed to reducing our impact on the environment.

Book Your
Appointment Online


We are taking bookings for Eye Examinations, Contact Lenses and Collections.

All visits to the practice are by appointment only and need to be pre-booked before arrival.

For the safety of our staff and patients, we have a restricted number of people in the practice. This enables us to sanitise the practice between each patient and allow safe distancing inside.

Due to the continuing situation, our clinic capacity is lower than it was previously, but we endeavour to see you as soon as possible.

We are open Monday – Friday 9.00am – 5.30pm & Saturday 9.00am – 4.00pm. Please leave a voicemail if we are unable to answer.
