Medact Yorkshire was formed in June 2017 by two GPs and two hospital doctors. Its numbers have swelled considerably due to representation at the 2017 Health Through Peace Conference in York and we now have a diverse group of members with interests across the Medact agenda.
We will be holding regular meetings at convenient locations in Yorkshire for education and sharing of ideas. Since 2019 we have been focusing on Fossil Fuel Free Health and divestment given the presence of the new Unconventional Oil and Gas Extraction industry across Yorkshire and the climate change and air pollution related to this. Join us and take part in our campaigning on this issue!
