Bringing health services into communities
Mobile clinics providing accessible healthcare
Our mobile clinics are designed to support communities by providing more accessible health services. From vaccinations and physical health checks, to health education and mental health support - our mobile clinics are flexbile clinical spaces that are supporting NHS Trusts, Health Boards and private healthcare providers across the country.
If you need support with addressing health inequalities, increasing access to health services and reducing pressures on A&E departments - please get in touch with our team.

Helping to reduce health inequalities
A mobile clinic supporting underserved and hard-to-reach communities
One third of the population in Cheshire and Merseyside live in the most deprived 20% of neighbourhoods in England. Cheshire and Wirral Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (CWP) are helping to address health inequalities in the region by:
- improving access to care through the Living Well Buses
- target identified high deprivation areas, underserved and hard-to-reach communities across the region
- provide on-the-spot vaccinations, physical health checks, wellbeing, and mental health support
We're proud to provide the Trust with 3 self-drive units, enabling NHS staff to drive to locations and provide clinical services.
Cheshire & Wirral Partnership NHS Foundation Trust's 'Living Well Bus'
"EMS Healthcare have developed a mechanism that enables us to get right in to seldom heard communities. The mobile unit provides a very flexible and versatile opportunity for people to get support and we would recommend any other local health system looking to meaningfully engage with people in the right place to consider a similar option."

Taking healthcare into the community
Improving access to services closer to home
Supporting communities across Greater Manchester and West Yorkshire, Locala Health and Wellbeing are helping to address health inequalities and reduce the burden on emergency departments through a 'mobile clinic in a van'.
The mobile health clinic provides a safe and clinical environment in accessible locations, helping to improve access to a range of services:
- drop-in childhood vaccinations
- sexual health support
- wound care
- GP services
People haven’t been calling ambulances. They’ve said that they haven’t gone up to A&E just because they know we’re here and they can come along and they can get the healthcare that they need here. Having access to the unit has been amazing for our service, it has enabled us to help reduce health inequalities by being able to see the most vulnerable of patients that can't always access the service.

This van can make a difference
1 in 8 men in the UK will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime.
Greater Manchester Cancer Alliance, The Christie NHS Foundation Trust and Greater Manchester Integrated Care Partnership are working together to talk to men over the age of 45 about their risk of prostate cancer and offer PSA blood tests on board a mobile health clinic, #ThisVanCan.
With the risk of prostate cancer increasing to 1 in 4 for black men, This Van Can is particularly aimed at engaging with black communities. EMS Healthcare are supporting the project by:
- Providing the van
- Supplying the phlebotomist
- Identifying locations to engage with the project's core demographic
