NHS London have put together a report about work done to use the Games as a platform to improve the health of Londoners. This includes work to increase physical activity levels in the capital and also to improve the way the NHS works. It’s called Go London! (exclamation mark is theirs not mine).
The report includes a number of case studies illustrating the broad range of ways in which the Games contributed to improving the health of Londoners.
Now, I’m still a long way from convinced that the Games were in any way useful for increasing participation, but I think there are some useful case studies in there which have done interesting and innovative things and are worth looking at.
Greenwich Get Active, a campaign we’ve been running, is on page 20 (their numbering). The Greenwich cycle loan scheme is another project I’ve been involved with, and that’s on page 23.
