A health bus is touring Leeds for three days next week – taking a range of Leeds Community Healthcare NHS Trust’s services to hard-to-reach groups in the city.
The bus will welcome people aboard for free mouth cancer screening, healthy eating advice, symptom advice, health checks and discussions on how to register with a GP.
The tour kicks off on Monday 26 November in Cottingley Springs, Gelderd Road, the permanent local authority Gypsy and Traveller site located to the west of the city.
It will then head to St George’s Crypt, which supports the homeless and vulnerable in the city, on Tuesday 27 November.
Things are rounded off on Wednesday 28 November, when the bus will be in Cromwell Mount, Burmantofts.
The venues are in areas where there are many unreached populations with a high prevalence of multiple health conditions.
While the tour coincides with Mouth Cancer Action Month, which has been raising awareness of the disease throughout November, a whole host of other services will be highlighting the support they offer people across Leeds.
Amanda Wilkinson, Service Manager for Community Dental, Homeless Admissions Leeds Pathway (HALP), Gypsy and Traveller Outreach, TB and Community Gynaecology, said: “It is a great opportunity for specialist services to go out to show what services Leeds Community Healthcare and our partners can provide for them.
“If you are passing by, please do pop in and see us. If you’re not but think you might know someone who might benefit from some support, give them our details.”
