Reward healthy living with tax breaks18th September 2008

Local health boards would be given the power to reward people who sign up for gyms, quit smoking or attend medical check-ups.
The party argues that a ''fundamental shift of power'' is needed from Whitehall to the health authorities , giving them the financial freedom to offer the incentives.''
