The Action Cancer BIG BUS is coming to CO3!
Thursday, September 27, 2018 - 09:30 to 15:30
Community Foundation NI, Community House, City Link Business Park, 6A Albert Street, Belfast , County Antrim, BT12 4HQ

Kindly funded by the Public Health Agency, CO3 has booked Action Cancer’s mobile unit, the BIG BUS, for Full CO3 Members. (CEO level) The bus will be stationed at Community Foundation NI, Community House, City Link Business Park, 6A Albert Street, Belfast , County Antrim, BT12 4HQ on Thursday 27 September.

The Big Bus provides two services which are now available to book:

  1. If you are a woman aged 40-49 or 70+, you are eligible to make an appointment for Breast Screening on the BIG BUS. The charity is the only place in Northern Ireland for women outside of the NHS screening age range to avail of a breast screening for free, so this is a great opportunity. The screening takes only a few minutes and, for the majority of women, provides peace of mind.
     
  2. MOT Health Checks are open to anyone aged 16+ and are a great way to get a current picture of your health. The check takes about 20 minutes and you will receive a variety of tests, such as blood pressure and cholesterol. You will also stand on the body composition scales to receive a print out of details such as muscle mass, hydration levels, fat around your organs, and BMI. The Health Promotion Officer carrying out your assessment will be able to provide advice and information about lifestyle improvements and cancer prevention.

Appointments run from 9:30am – 3.20pm and are limited. Places will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
