The day will be action packed with activities and information for everybody from toddlers to adults! The Health Fair is open to the public from 10am – 1pm and will feature an extensive vehicle display and interactive information stands from the ambulance service, emergency service partners and other health organisations.

The Health Fair is followed by the trust’s Annual General Meeting from 2 – 3pm which will include briefings from the trust’s Board on the organisation’s performance and outline its proposed future plans, with a chance for visitors to ask any questions they may have.

Julie Treharne, Head of Communications at NWAS, said: “We’re very excited to host this free event in East Lancashire. We hope everyone enjoys the day and joins in the fun whilst learning more about the ambulance service too. This event gives us the opportunity to talk to and gain a valuable understanding of our patients’ experiences so that we can learn ways to better serve them.”
