Hospital admission due to obesity show a worrying increase of 20%

The recent news that hospital admissions where obesity is a factor is on a sharp incline is increasingly worrying. 

With more pressure on the NHS than ever before it is absolutely vital that problems such as obesity, which are inherently avoidable, are tackled at the source allowing health professionals time to focus on real issues. 

We have many health activities taking place on our sites across the country and we know they make a difference to people's health and well-being, both physical and mental. 

The answer to this problem is a simple one: more time spent outdoors in attractive green spaces. 

There are plenty of places out there already but we also need government to recognise that sustainable investment in green space is a worthwhile one, will improve people's lifestyles and will have a positive impact, not just on the spiralling costs of the NHS, but also on the UK economy as a whole.
