We have agreed an allocation of at least £316,000 to NHS London for the period 2008-09. Further funding to support the delivery of health services during the Olympic Games and a lasting health legacy is under discussion. In particular the current review of sport and physical activity being led by HM Treasury will contribute to our planning for an ambitious and effective health programme leading up to 2012 and beyond. More substantial plans will be announced in August to coincide with the official start of the London Olympiad.
