Health Awareness in your local area
Help us to make sure that health professionals are Meningitis Aware. Can you identify five health locations such as GP Surgeries, pharmacies, hospitals or clinics that you can take in our meningitis pack? This will help us to ensure that those health professionals are aware of the signs and symptoms of meningitis and can pass that information onto the people who come into their premises. Register your interest today and get started making your health professionals meningitis aware.
School and Nursery Awareness in your local area
Help us to make sure that teachers, child minders, play group staff and nursery staff are Meningitis Aware. Can you identify five locations such as primary, junior or secondary schools, child minders, play groups and children nurseries that you can take in our meningitis pack? This will ensure that the people, who spend their day looking after children, are aware of the signs and symptoms of meningitis and can pass that information onto the parents. Register your interest today and get started making your education professionals meningitis aware.
