Sunderland, United Kingdom, January 01, 2015 --(PR.com)-- The prescription boiler scheme in Sunderland has been a success.

Commenting, Kevin Burke, spokesperson for boiler cover specialists 247 Home Rescue, said:

"It is now clear that energy efficiency can not only cut people's utility bills, but can also improve their health and reduce some of the burdens faced by the NHS.

"We anticipated that the 'boiler on prescription' scheme would be a big success, and our predictions have come true.

"Clinical commissioning groups and other healthcare organisations need to take the results of this trial seriously and consider implementing similar schemes in their own areas."
