The Big Bus


Action Cancer’s mobile unit, the BIG BUS, is coming to:

 St Mary’s Primary School on 21st and 22nd of May

The Big Bus provides two services which are now available to book, we are asking a total contribution of £15/person to avail of either or both of the services outlined below. All money collected goes to the charity Action Cancer.

  1. If you are a woman aged 40-49 or 70+, you are eligible to make an appointment for Breast Screening on the BIG BUS. The charity is the only place in Northern Ireland for women outside of the NHS screening age range to avail of a breast screening, so this is a great opportunity. The screening takes only a few minutes and for the majority of women, provides peace of mind.
  2. MOT Health Checks are open to anyone aged 16+ and are a great way to get a current picture of your health. The check takes about 20 minutes and you will receive a variety of tests, such as blood pressure and cholesterol. You will also stand on the body composition scales to receive a print out of details such as muscle mass, hydration levels, fat around your organs, and BMI. The Health Promotion Officer carrying out your assessment will be able to provide advice and information about lifestyle improvements and cancer prevention.

Call Action Cancer on 028 9080 3344,  Phone lines are open from 8am – 8pm Monday to Friday and 9am – 5pm on Saturday.

Or visit to make your appointment on line for either service.
