West Yorkshire Public Health Pharmacy Campaigns (Promotion of Healthy Lifestyles)

Each year pharmacies are required participate in up to six public health campaigns at the request of NHS England.    Within the West Yorkshire area each of the Local Authority areas have decided their topic areas for the 2013/14 year.

Pharmacists and their staff will pro-actively take part in and contribute to national/local campaigns for patients and general pharmacy visitors during the campaign period, including giving advice to people on the campaign issues. This advice may be supplemented by provision of written information and in-store displays. 

The Public Health Calendar 2013-14 describes these areas.

In addition, pharmacies are required undertake prescription-linked interventions on major areas of public health concern, such as encouraging smoking cessation.


Every Baby Matters in Calderdale

Together with a multi- agency task group, NHS Calderdale has produced an excellent guide, full of useful information and advice for promoting the health and wellbeing of mothers and babies. It covers issues such as:

·         health in pregnancy

·         healthy lifestyle

·         breast feeding

·         genetic awareness

·         healthy homes

·         safe sleeping

·         caring for sick children

It also has lots of useful contact numbers and is available in a range of languages (English, Czech, Slovak, Polish and Urdu).

We believe that this guide will be useful for all practitioners working with families.  The information is also highly relevant to those working with young people who may be parents in the future.

Further copies of the leaflet are available from:  01422 397340 or email: healthresources@swyt.nhs.uk
