Answer for Fuel Poverty

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Professor Yvonne Doyle, regional director of the Public Health England (PHE) London office, is my statutory Health Advisor in line with the GLA Act, who I consult regularly on a range of issues. My officers work closely with PHE, among other health-sector stakeholders to consider potential fuel poverty interventions in the capital. We will look to involve them further on the development of projects in the future, such as the establishment of referral mechanisms.
