As part of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiative especially in the health sector, Sterling Bank Plc has commenced a four day Mobile Health Screening Campaign to provide on-the-spot health checks for members of the general public.
Sterling Bank is rolling out this project in partnership with Medifield Mobile Health Services and will deploy a Mobile Medical Unit to provide fast and reliable health services to interested customers.
Customers with new accounts opened during this campaign will also be eligible for basic health screening checks such as blood pressure check, body mass index and diabetes screening. Locations for the four day programme will include Ogijo, Owode Onirin, Festac and Ajegunle.
The campaign, according to the Bank would help to provide basic counsel and medical solutions to customers and prospects on health issues.
The Bank said: “Many Nigerians don’t have the time to go for medical checks either because they are busy or they do not have the financial capacity to do so. So what we are doing is to take this facility to their door steps free as part of our CSR initiative to enrich the lives of our customers as well as non-customers”.
According to the Bank’s spokesperson, Mr. Shina Atilola who is also the Group Head, Strategy & Communications, the existing customers will have free access to the health check while non-customers will be required to open an account with the Bank to enjoy the benefit.
His words: “Ideally, we are looking at locations with mass market because that is where you have a lot of these people who really need this service that is, a value addition to provision of financial services. So we shall be going to Ogijo, Owode Onirin, Festac and Ajegunle for now. I want to assure you that the Bank will sustain this project just as we continue to make impact in the lives of our people.
