Health

Good health means we can enjoy a fulfilling and happy life. City Hall has a role in ensuring that Londoners from all backgrounds are able to lead a healthy lifestyle.

The London Health Board, NHS and local councils are currently working to deliver the recommendations of the London Health Commission. They believe that the more involved Londoners are in decisions about health, the better health and healthcare will be.

Healthy streets

Health

We want London’s streets to be “healthy streets”. But what does this mean to you – are there things that make you feel good or bad when out and about?

NHS

Health

NHS as we know is at a crises point financially.

All politicians have now confirmed that a good Brexit deal is vital for the NHS very survival and that a no Brexit deal will categorically be extremely harmful to such a great institution that must be fully treasured.

Where are the Maturer Elderly citizens in our society?

Health

I hardly see our maturer elderly citizens out and about on foot these days not even to walk down our local shopping area. Even elderly people need to shop for food clothes and gifts just like the rest of us.

NO SMOKING UNDER BUS SHELTERS

Health

The NO SMOKING SIGNS at all London Bus stops are too small and are way way above eye level. They should be brought down to eye level and made bigger. Smoking adds to the woes of Londoners using Buses while waiting under the Bus Shelters.

Improving air quality - Suggestions

Health

The mayor has just submitted bold plans to clean up London's air. Along with his initiatives I suggest a very simple change that should have an immediate impact: Forcing vehicles to switch off the ignition when waiting.

So London has breached its pollution allotment for 2017 in the first week, and this has been a consistent thing for nearly a decade now. What are we going to do about this?
