Health-Related Charities Will Be On Hand To Offer Advice

08.10.2014

Irwin Mitchell has joined forces with a number of health charities and organisations, including the Wolverhampton branch of the West Midlands Fire Service, to create a free Health Awareness Day to help members of the local community access health-related advice and support.

Set to take place on October 12th between 10am and 4pm, the Health Awareness Day at the Wolverhampton Community Fire Station will see organisations such as the Stroke Association, the Alzheimer’s Society and Sandwell Asian Family Support Services on hand to offer health guidance to visitors.

Similar health events in the region organised by Irwin Mitchell have proved very successful and allowed people to access advice on health-related matters.

People attending the latest event in Wolverhampton will have access to a range of health checks delivered by health care professionals, including a free eye test, CPR training and blood pressure checks. 

Information on general heart health and advice on a range of health-related issues will also be available.

Satinder Bains, a Partner and specialist industrial disease lawyer at Irwin Mitchell’s Birmingham office, said:
Expert Opinion
This is the first time we have joined forces with such a large organisation such as the Fire Service and we are delighted to be working with them in delivering this service to the community in Wolverhampton.

“The Health Awareness Day will offer those attending the opportunity to receive free health checks and advice. We hope that the local community will come to the fire station and take advantage of the free care and advice on offer.

“It can sometimes be difficult to come to terms with health problems and approach medical professionals for advice on general health and lifestyle. However, this informal event will provide people with the opportunity to come along and learn more about different conditions and other related issues.”
Satinder Bains, Partner

WCDR Warren Davies commented “Wolverhampton Fire Station and West Midlands Fire Service are delighted to work with Irwin Mitchell and provide free Health Awareness days for our community. This shows our commitment to our Health and Well-being agenda and that of the Wolverhampton City strategy in providing this worthwhile event. We would recommend people, take up on this offer, as it is free and will have experts in their field giving advice, in an informal relaxed atmosphere.”
