The NHS Health Bus

NHS Berkshire Healthcare - Children and Young People and Families Service logo

This Autumn, Berkshire Healthcare Foundation Trust are launching their new Health Bus which will serve as a mobile health clinic, bringing services direct to local communities.

The health bus will be in the Wokingham Borough on the 30 November 2022:

Location: Norreys Church, Wokingham, RG40 1UU

Time: 10am until 2pm

Services on offer

From October, the bus will be helping the Trust to deliver immunisation services to school-aged children across Berkshire. The bus will be staffed by the Berkshire Healthcare Immunisation Team who will provide people with information on immunisations, particularly flu vaccines. The team will offer children and young people a flu vaccine and signpost to other services if needed. 

Bus facilities

  • The bus features state of the art facilities, adhering to infection control standards and health and safety requirements
  • A ramp to allow easier access for wheelchair users and those with mobility issues
  • Private curtained area for people wishing to speak to a clinician in confidence
  • The rear section of the vehicle can convert to a sensory area to enable anxious people to access services in a calming space and includes a couch, table and chairs, creating a confidential consulting/treatment space
  • An awning increases the space available and creates an undercover area next to the bus to protect people from the weather
