Dry January Campaign

This campaign is mandatory for all community pharmacies.

The Dry January campaign will run throughout the month of January 2020. This will be from the first day the pharmacy opens after the new year, up to 31st January 2020.

This is the last of the six mandatory, national pharmacy campaigns for 2019/2020, agreed by NHS England and Public Health England as part of your Community Pharmacy Contractual Framework (CPCF).

This campaign is to encourage people to change their drinking habits and raise awareness of the harmful effects of excess drinking.

Materials should be with you by 31st December 2019.

Digital materials are also available.

Participation is MANDATORY– please ensure you fully understand what is expected of you throughout the campaign and brief your pharmacy team.

Contractors can also sign up for more information about Dry January on the Alcohol Change UK website.

If a contractor has not received their calendars by the first day their pharmacy opens for business in 2020 they should email: england.communitypharmacy@nhs.net
