Halton health workers wage war on flu
A FUN photo shoot has been held to encourage nurses to have a jab.

Staff at Bridgewater Community Healthcare NHS Trust is launching an innovative ‘War on Flu’ campaign to encourage its 3,200 staff to take up the offer of a free flu vaccination.
The 40s style internal poster campaign urges local NHS community staff in Halton and across the north west to enlist for the jab.
Bridgewater’s chief executive Dr Kate Fallon said: “Although having the flu vaccine is a personal choice, we encourage all staff to have the vaccine if possible so we can help reduce staff sickness and keep our patients flu-free.
“The posters have a light-hearted tone designed to engage staff but they also include hard-hitting messages about flu and the importance of being vaccinated. We hope the campaign will encourage staff to attend one of the many flu vaccination sessions on offer.
“I would like to thank all our staff who have been involved in the campaign.”
Four different posters will be distributed to offices, clinics and health centres. Each member of staff will also receive a ‘War on Flu’ leaflet attached to their payslip.
Nurses, administrative officers, receptionists and managers teamed up with a fancy dress shop and theatre to pose for the photo shoot.
Bridgewater staff work in Halton, Warrington, St Helens, Wigan and Leigh.
