Tanni Grey Thompson Wants Investment In Leisure Centres To Improve Health

November 14, 2016

According to forecasts there will be a £22bn hole in the finances of the NHS in England by 2020, but could some of that gap be closed if people were leading healthier lifestyles?

Former paralympian Tanni Grey-Thompson wants the government to invest in ageing leisure centres to encourage people to get off the sofa and into the gym and the swimming pool.

The baroness puts her case in a personal film for the Daily Politics’ soapbox series, saying: “I believe if we spend more of our time and resources on prevention, then we can dramatically reduce the pressure on our health budget.”
