MOT Your Heart Campaign to be launched this Valentine’s Day to encourage Bracknell Forest Residents to look after their health

13 February 2015

Specialist advisors will take to Bracknell Town Centre this Saturday where they will be offering FREE Health MOTs from the “Wellness on Wheels” van.

The MOT Your Heart campaign will encourage local people to take advantage of FREE health MOTs as the first step towards making positive lifestyle changes.

Solutions 4 Health and Bracknell Forest Council are launching a new campaign this Saturday to raise awareness of the support available locally for people to start making healthy lifestyle changes. MOT Your Heart aims to spread the message to local people that support is available to help them care for their health and what better time to do this than Valentine’s Day when people are spending time with their nearest and dearest.

The Bracknell Forest Council Public Health Consultant Dr. Lisa McNally said “The idea of having an MOT for your health is a great idea.  Getting information on our current health allows us to take control of our future health, which I know is something that Bracknell Forest residents are increasingly keen to do!”

This Saturday the Solutions 4 Health team will be near Morrisons within the car park at Peel Centre, Skimped Hill Lane Bracknell, RG12 1EN from 10-4pm offering advice and free Health MOTs from their “Wellness on Wheels” clinic. The assessments only take 20 minutes and can tell you all about your current health.

Stop smoking advisors will be on hand to sign people on to their tailored quit support programme accompanied by mascots Big Cig and Healthy Heart. There will be free face painting for children and advisors will be handing out fruit and information on the local services available to them.

Pallavi Kaushal, Public Health Lifestyle Services Manager, Solutions 4 Health said: “Having a Health MOT can tell you so much about your current health and it only takes a few minutes. I would advise as many people as possible to take up the opportunities available to them to help start living healthier lifestyles to prevent health related complications later on in life. It could be a game changer for you!! Getting an MOT for your heart can put you in the right direction to start making the necessary changes.”
