Bus creates a buzz

Salford City was buzzing with free checks during Know your Numbers! Week 2013.

Members of the public were given mini health 'MOT's' in the Salford health bus which included checking blood pressures. The bus was out and about during the week visiting supermarkets, workplaces and other busy areas of Salford. We hope the results weren't too much of a shock!
