NHS could benefit from better parks access

Press Releasein Industry News

The NHS could save more than £2bn each year if "equitable, good access" to green space is achieved across England, according to a government advisory body.

In its latest work on the relationship between green space and health, Natural England estimates savings of £2.1bn a year through improving green space.

A key part of the campaign is the Walking for Health initiative (formerly known as WHI), which has been expanded by Natural England and the Department of Health to provide £11.3m investment for the next three years.
