Get your health checked this summer as roving service comes to Knowsley

by Guy Murphy

The local NHS has launched a roving health screening service across Knowsley this summer. Operating from a mobile unit, the roving clinic will travel to a variety of locations in the local community, so that residents can drop-in for a health check at a time and place convenient to them.

Working closely with public health teams within Knowsley, the service will offer a number of physical health checks, COVID-19 vaccinations as well as advice, guidance and signposting regarding lifestyle, mental wellbeing and social support.

Physical health checks on offer:

  • Cholesterol
  • Blood Pressure
  • Glucose
  • BMI
  • Pulse Check

Each health check will be delivered by registered clinicians and GPs will receive a notification letter advising on any follow-up actions, along with a scanned copy of the completed assessment form.

The service will run between June and September 2022, holding approximately two clinics per week. For a list of confirmed locations please see below. Check back here for updates as more dates are added.
