We would like to invite you to attend a Health and Wellbeing drop in afternoon which will take place on Tuesday 4th September 2-7pm at The Branches Christian Fellowship, (formally Smallbridge Methodist Church), 1 Wesley Street, Rochdale, OL12 9RW.
This is an informal information afternoon where people can drop in anytime between 2-7pm and stay as long as they like with the aim of supporting local people to access local health and wellbeing provision, attendees can browse the various information stalls, chat to others while having a drink and healthy snack.
There will be stalls from organisations such as Healthwatch Rochdale, Rochdale and District Disability Action Group (RADDAG), HMR Circle, Community Connectors. Diabetes UK will be on hand to assess people’s ‘risk’ of developing diabetes and to offer advice as to how to reduce this risk. Health Trainers from Living Well will also be available to check blood pressure and chat to people about how they can improve their health and wellbeing.
The event is aimed at reducing the pressure on already overstretched NHS services by guiding local people to existing community provision and identifying potential issues before they develop. Events such as this are generally held during the working day and so we hope that the different timing of this event will allow people to drop in before collecting children from school or on the way home from work.
We would welcome your attendance at the event and be very grateful if you are able to promote this event with your contacts and encourage as many people as possible to attend.
