GP hopes city win will boost health

Dr James Graham is hopeful Liverpool's selection as European Capital of Culture in 2008 will boost the health of its population.

Dr Graham, a GP in Tuebrook, north Liverpool, believes the 14,000 jobs and millions of pounds of investment expected to accompany the endorsement will have a substantial effect as deprivation levels fall and health is improved. He is also hopeful that local facilities, such as leisure centres, can be improved as parts of the city are regenerated, contributing further to the physical well-being of Liverpudlians.

'It's well deserved and will draw people into the city,' said Dr Graham. 'In general a lot of areas need good employment and better standards of local facilities. It will have a beneficial effect all round.'
