Greener Primary Care Wales Insights Survey
Public Health Wales has recently commissioned Local Partnerships to survey the primary care workforce in Wales regarding the barriers and enablers to participating in the Greener Primary Care Wales Scheme. We would be grateful if you could complete the survey before it closes on the 28th of February 2024. The survey should take no more than 10-15 minutes to complete, responses are anonymous, and we will be using the results to help shape the future of the Greener Primary Care Wales Framework and Award Scheme and the support we provide to you.
