|Stagecoach has joined forces
with the UK's largest independent hospital provider BMI Healthcare to launch
a voluntary heart health screening programme for employees in its UK Bus
division. A state-of-the-art 'Healthy Heart Bus' – the first of its kind
in the UK - will tour Stagecoach's bus depots, providing free heart health
check-ups for thousands of staff.
The double-decker vehicle has been specially
designed in partnership with BMI Healthcare and was refurbished by Plaxton
Limited as a mobile cardio-screening unit equipped with patient consultation
facilities and the latest exercise electrocardiogram (ECG) equipment.
