As we navigate through unprecedented times, prioritising health and well-being has never been more crucial. Rochdale Health Alliance (RHA) stands at the forefront, supporting communities across Heywood, Middleton, and Rochdale. Today, we're excited to shed light on the vital services we provide, particularly our Flu and COVID vaccination clinics.


RHA's Commitment to Community Health:

Throughout 2021-2022, RHA has played a pivotal role in the mass COVID vaccination programme, a testament to our commitment to public health. Our efforts have been focused on ensuring that patients receive timely and efficient vaccination services, contributing to the collective goal of community immunity.
