The ‘Living Well’ bus service is returning to Southport this month to offer residents a free NHS health check and the opportunity to catch up on first and second COVID-19 vaccines, as well as third primary doses for those who are immunosuppressed.
Operating as a drop-in service, the bus offers a range of physical health checks, COVID-19 vaccinations, and referrals to talking therapies.
The bus will be at the following locations from 10:30am-4pm, with no appointment needed:
- Thursday 2 March – Netherton Activity Centre, Bootle, L30 3TL
- Tuesday 7 March – LIDL car park, Marsh Lane, Bootle, L20 5BQ
- Saturday 18 March – Park Hotel, Weld Road, Birkdale, Southport, PR8 2ED
- Friday 24 March – LIDL car park, Wellington Road, Litherland, Bootle, L21 6PD
The service, which is delivered by the Cheshire and Wirral Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, was launched in June 2022 to offer a consistent health and care approach across communities across Cheshire and Merseyside. All activity is recorded and shared with your GP, ensuring ongoing understanding and support for your health is in place.
