An Olympic year brings suspense, the utmost of human endeavour, glory and jubilation, but also tears and disappointment for athletes, spectators and politicians alike (Cashman 2006). This year heralds the return of the Olympic flame to U.K. shores, but with it some profound and deeply testing concerns. Escalating costs of health care, housing and food, in addition to progressive economic decline and attendant austerity measures are challenging the health and quality of life of many communities. Thus, the joy and jubilation of the Olympics and Paralympic Games provides a useful although temporary distraction from the day-to-day concerns of rising unemployment, dwindling access and accessibility to health and public services for governments, policy makers, public health professionals and researchers.
