The ‘stay well this winter’ bus will roll into Birmingham this week! Street health advisors will be on board to provide tips to passing shoppers on how to look after themselves when the temperature drops.
An old-fashioned red bus will call at three locations across the city (Friday 4, Saturday 5 and Friday 11 December) and has been organised by NHS Birmingham CrossCity Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), which buys health services for people across the city.
The health advisors will be encouraging shoppers and passers-by to spare a couple of minutes and hop on board during the bus’s visits to Erdington High Street on Friday, Northfield High Street on Saturday and finally at the Bull Ring markets the following Friday (11 December). The bus will be at its stops between 9.30am and 3.30pm.
As December draws that little bit closer, it’s important to protect your little ones to ensure that they can enjoy the excitement of the season.
Before the inevitable rounds of coughs, sneezes and runny noses really get a grip, NHS Birmingham CrossCity Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is urging parents of children between the ages of two and seven to make sure they are protected against the nasty effects of flu for the winter months.
