The Man Van

The Man Van

 ‘The Man Van’ allows access to rural areas and is used as a venue for health checks and one-to-one health awareness sessions for men.

Vehicle layout and services:

The Man Van has two separate areas:

  1. The waiting / information area - clients will receive health and lifestyle information from Senior Cancer Prevention Staff and will be supported in using interactive tools such as the skin scanner, testicular model, Carbon Monoxide monitor and others as appropriate.
  2. The core area where blood pressure, spot cholesterol and blood glucose checks can be carried out plus weight, height, and body composition measures taken by the ManAlive Health Promotion Nurse.

 The design of the vehicle supports confidentiality: sound proofing doors between the two work areas, limousine tinted windows plus separate entrance and exits ensures that clients are not returning back through the waiting area.


Minimum 6 participants – numbers should be discussed with facilitator. A booking schedule may be used if deemed appropriate.

NB The Man Van will be available to travel to events such as country fairs and vintage rallies where a more flexible approach will be used.
