Nurses from Guy’s and St Thomas’ hospital in London are using e-bikes to visit their patients as part of an initiative to improve sustainability and improve staff health and wellbeing.
Members of staff within the Mawbey Brough neighbourhood nursing team usually drive, walk or use public transport to get to their patients in Lambeth, South London.
Although they can now sign up to a pilot project using an e-bike featuring a cargo hold for any equipment they need.
As well as reducing emissions and congestion on London’s road, the e-bike also involves fewer parking restrictions meaning the nurses can operate within the capital more quickly and efficiently.
