The bus, delivered by Cheshire and Wirral Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, travels to different locations across the region to support people to improve their health and wellbeing.
This December, the bus will be visiting five locations. Residents will be able to drop by to access a range of services, including physical health checks such as a blood pressure and pulse check, cholesterol check, blood glucose check, and body mass index (BMI) check.
Residents can also get advice and support on improving their mental wellbeing, with signposting or referrals made to appropriate services, if required.
People visiting the Living Well bus can also receive their flu and COVID-19 vaccine if they are eligible. During periods of peak COVID-19 vaccine demand, the team will prioritise vaccination delivery, with health checks provided when possible.

Cllr Maureen McLaughlin, cabinet member for public health and wellbeing, said: “The Living Well bus is a useful and informal free drop-in service where anyone can drop in for a quick health check with advice and guidance around what you can do to improve your health and wellbeing.
“This service can be especially valuable during winter when you may need to get your seasonal vaccinations. The bus is offering COVID-19 and flu vaccinations to those who are eligible. So, if you are able to get on board the bus during one of its visits to Warrington this month, I encourage you to do so.
“The friendly team will be on hand to offer a range of useful guidance which will help you improve your lifestyle and stay healthy and well.”
