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.

Online access to health services

Health

Our surveys show that Talk Londoners are more willing to use the internet to access health services than Londoners in general. It’s inevitable that access to health care will be digitalised more in the future to make access easier and faster.

Cycling

I hear from my niece that cycling through Tower Hamlets is problematic due to Muslim harassment. Is this area not part of British soil? They seem to think she is trespassing..

Free lunches for all primary school children

Health

Every child up to the age of 7 will get free school lunches from next September. This universal benefit was announced today (18 September) by Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg, after children in areas with free lunches were shown to be two months ahead of their peers in maths and literacy.

Sports participation

Health

Immediately after the 2012 Games many were full of inspiration and good intentions to exercise and play sport regularly. Did you take up any new activities? Are you still active regularly now that we are approaching a year from the start of the Games?

The Gift of Interaction

Health

Back in my other life of ignorance and low awareness, someone would pay me a compliment and I would feel terribly embarrassed about it; as though I did not deserve it. They might say how wonderful I looked in that smashing dress, etc.

Raising Money for young people to take part in Sport

Health

My daughters are teenagers who have been educated in the state sector. They attended 2 different primary schools where sport provision was not much more than balancing on wooden benches in the hall if it was wet and playing rounders if it was dry.
