Mayor to Lead Action on Obesity and Physical Activity in London

“The Mayor of London has announced plans to establish a high-level Londonwide group to make sure London meets the Government’s target to reduce childhood obesity in the capital. The group will include co-ordinate action on sport, physical fitness, health and obesity across the capital and include partners from NHS London, Sport England, Youth Sport Trust, Transport for London, London 2012, London Food Board, and Government departments. The announcement coincides with the publication of the Mayor's draft Health Inequalities Strategy for consultation with the London Assembly, before full public consultation later this year.”
