Public Health Campaigns 2018

We will list below the different NHS Public Health Campaigns, as we become aware of them.

 

Here are some campaigns that you may want to participate in. 

 

Help Us Help You

This years national winter public health campaign for pharmacies has been announced by Public Health England. It will be an evolution of the Stay Well This Winter brand into Help Us Help You. Stay Well evaluated very well so thank you all for your participation last year.

Help Us Help You is a family of campaigns including NHS111, flu immunisation, staying well in winter, pharmacy and extended GP hours. The campaign will also be run in GP practices and other settings and will involve a lot of publicity.

Help Us Help You aims to frame your conversations based on the principle of reciprocity which empowers both service users and staff - by following their advice, people can help NHS experts help them stay well, prevent an illness getting worse, take the best course of action and get well again sooner.
 
Every community pharmacy in England will automatically receive a free Help Us Help You pharmacy pack delivered by the Healthcare Distribution Association UK (HDA UK) between 10th - 26th October 2018 (the majority of these packs will be delivered w/c 15th October. The campaign overview to support Help Us Help You can be accessed here
