Face to Face
If a community group or community venue is interested in raising awareness of the long term conditions they can request the presence of a roadshow within their group venue.
We will come along have a stall or deliver a presentation with a range of information on; cancer, cardiovascular disease, lung disease and diabetes. This will include information on the signs and symptoms of the conditions, the importance of going to a GP when noticing a sign or symptom, the NHS screening and health check programmes associated to each of these conditions and the importance of healthy living.
The venue varies- from range of community venues and times in which it is relevant to be there. Promotion will be done for events across the area so that people are aware that events are taking place. However, predominantly most people use this service as a drop in.
