UK based think tank, SMF has called the Health hubs combining GP surgeries, health and social care services and gyms established in town.
The Social Mobility Foundation has called for high streets to become more health focused to maintain economic and social activity as town centre footfall continues to reduce.
Scott Corfe, SMF research director, said: “The aftermath of the coronavirus pandemic looks set to change our high streets permanently. To remain relevant, our town and city centres will need to be reimagined – and we think that health should be a key aspect of this repurposing of the high street.
“Bringing more parks, GP surgeries, gyms and ‘health hubs’ to the high street could prevent the rise of ghost towns and improve the physical and mental wellbeing of the population.”
