Increasing cervical cancer screening uptake
Reducing the risk of cervical cancer
As part of Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust's national campaign, ‘Eradicate Cervical Cancer’, we supported them with taking health education into communities.
With a programme that went into areas where uptake of cervical screening was low, we supported the charity with identifying community locations to communicate with the hard-to-reach.
Taking education into communities
Some of the best engagement rates that Jo's Trust had ever seen
conversations provided help and support with issues around cervical cancer
information travel wallets were handed out across 66 events
locations to reach out to women in areas where the cervical screening attendance was low
Increasing vaccination capacity
Supporting a future where good health is within everyone’s reach
City Hackney and South West Essex Primary Care Trust needed to improve uptake on MMR to protect both children and adults against measles. By taking a mobile clinic into the community, we supported the London borough with:
- Raising awareness of the risks involved with not vaccinating children
- Delivering 2,191 on-the-spot vaccinations to all unprotected children and adults in the area
Exceeding South West Essex’s initial vaccination target by 64%
By taking the clinic out into the community - directly to where children and parents are, we were quickly able to improve vaccination levels. Parents’ responses to previous MMR appeals have been disappointing, but this time we offered them a very quick and convenient service. The roadshow helped deliver a high-profile marketing campaign explaining why vaccination is so important.
