12th February to 31st March 2018
From Monday 12th February, the Stay Well Pharmacy NHS Campaign will launch. With TV adverts and posters to promote community pharmacy, this campaign aims to encourage patients to seek advice from their local community pharmacy for minor illnesses, instead of going to their GP or A&E.
This campaign is focusing on the following:
- Sore throats
- Coughs and colds
- Tummy problems
For this campaign, the resource hub is available on the PSNC website, for materials to support Pharmacists and Pharmacy Teams.
Note: These materials are designed for health professionals and are therefore embargoed and should NOT be used until the campaign officially begins.
Take ill children to the chemist first, says Ilford pharmacist
You local colleague, Shaheed Bhatia from P&S Chemist, has been promoting this campaign in the news. Please see her video interview with Sky News (Twitter link) and a local article from the Ilford recorder below.
This is a great example of the work being done in our area to support this NHS Campaign.
If you would also like to share your work or any success stories with us and your fellow pharmacists, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
