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.

Keep talking with us. Join in with a discussion below or feel free to start up your own.

increase fines to vehicles that run engines while on stand

Health

I frequently come across people in vehicles
having their engines on while on stand.
These can be private vehicles, and more often than not,
trade vans with drivers that have their engines on for no
particular reason.

Restaurant Calorie Count Information

Health

I would welcome London following the example of New York and introducing regulation that requires restaurants and pubs to display calorie information for both food and drinks on their menus.

Noise pollution

Health

The noise level for those that live in London is far too great. If you suffer from noise in your neighbourhood, there isn't much you can do, but it does cause a lot of stress to many. If you are a shift worker, then sleeping when many are awake is terrible.

What are good things

Health

Dear Londoners,

Yes, off course we all know what are good things, but have we ever thought to start marketing about this in our beautiful metropolitan city London?

Lets share some ideas and I'll be very delighted to start.

Small changes, big difference

Health

Have you made any small changes lately, such as walking to the next bus stop, to improve your health? Would adverts reminding you to do this help?
