Talking about how to stay well

Trafford Event

To spread the word on how people can ‘make the right call’ we hosted community engagement events in two of the region’s shopping centres.

Many of our frontline staff supported the events at the Trafford Centre and Botony Bay which turned out to be a huge success. We were also able share some of our partners’ health information and promote uptake of the flu vaccination.

We had ambulances on display for people to explore, CPR demonstrations by our volunteers, mini health checks by 111 nurses, front line crews offering advice on staying well this winter and making the right call and also our fabulous, dancing Pandamedic!

Alongside the fun of interacting with the public, we also gave out some serious advice. Following the mini health checks, 111 nurses told some people to make an urgent GP appointment due to high blood pressure.
