Over a number of years we have provided a variety of exhibition solutions for Greater Manchester Public Health Network, with the successes from these projects leading to individual PCT’s to take the projects further in their region.
The first project we were involved in for GMPHN was the ‘Quit it’ smoking campaign. The concept of the project was to have a mobile unit that was easily accessible by all in the community by parking in a different location each day. GMPHN wanted to be able to promote the ‘Quit it’ Campaign on the doorsteps of people who may not have sought help for giving up smoking by visiting their doctors surgery.
Using a bus as a mobile surgery gave the perfect set up for the project. The lower deck became a great space used a drop in centre, the open plan layout and the canopy sited outside gave a friendly and approachable space to welcome people. The upper deck of the bus was transformed with privacy booths fitted giving the nurses a space to work with individual patients for more in depth and private consultations.
The First campaign toured for 6 weeks around Greater Manchester area. During those 6 weeks over 750 people came on board the bus.
