In conjunction with our NHS Community Health Checks we teamed up with the Wellbeing Wagon that has proved a valuable way to offer mobile health and wellbeing services and connect with people. This has helped us get out into the community and provide more health checks to people that need them. Click here to view a PDF with more information.
