Park Gyms – for all local residents

Whitechapel Health Centre’s Patient Participation Group met recently and expressed a desire to have a Park Gym in order to encourage a healthier community, particularly since many local residents may find access to membership gyms unaffordable.

Dr Hasnain Abbasi agreed to help the patients and local residents by leading a petition to the local Mayor and Tower Hamlets Council, in order to secure funding for this initiative, and commented that a healthier population is one of the key goals of this practice, and that all local residents could make use of the resource to better manage their health, whilst reducing the burden on an already overstretched National Health Service.

If you wish to sign the petition, you can do so here: www.ipetitions.com/petition/park-gym-petition

We will announce the decision as soon as we have a response from the Mayor or Council.
