The Irish Heart Foundation’s Mobile Health Unit is travelling around communities in Ireland with trained nurses providing FREE blood pressure checks, and comprehensive lifestyle advice on heart health.
The response to the Mobile Unit from the community has been great. A recent stop at Dolphin House Community Development Association in Dublin City Centre had wonderful feedback.
Lisa Buckley a representative for Dolphin House Community Development Association said:
“The consultations were very comprehensive and the feedback was very positive. A number of people were referred to their GPs so it was very important that they had their blood pressure checked on the day. The unit is fitted out with a private consultation room as well as a waiting room so it is very suited to its purpose and comfortable for people. We will definitely be asking them back in the future.”
Having the Mobile Health Unit outside our Health Fair was a very visual way of drawing people in to get health checks.
