70 Facts, 70 Days

In the run up to the official Birthday in July, we're posting a fun fact about our trust on Twitter for 70 days. 

 

Here's a snippet of our Tweets:

  • Did you know…we could fill 119 double decker buses with the number of patients we see on an average week at our Walk-in Centre.
  • Between Oct-Dec 2017 our Cheshire East 0-19 Service vaccinated over 15,500 children against Flu. That’s enough children to fill Crewe Alexander Football Ground over 1.5 times.
  • Over a 12 month period we’ve ordered enough alcohol hand rub to fill 6 bath tubs! That’s 482 litres of alcohol hand rub. 
  • Did you know the average person swallows 600 times per day and produces about 2.5 bathtubs full of saliva in a year!
  • Over the last 12 months there have been more than 2000 feet wandering the streets of Wirral wearing our bespoke podiatry insoles…
