A new health campaign, One You, has been launched by Public Health England which aims to help adults live longer and healthier lives, avoiding future diseases caused by modern lifestyles, and community pharmacists are being encouraged to get involved.
One You focuses on seven key lifestyle behaviours and reminds people that it’s never too late to improve their health. The lifestyle beheaviours are: checking yourself (that your body's most important systems are all running smoothly), being smoke free, eating well, drinking less, stressing less and sleeping better.
A toolkit has been developed for community pharmacies to help promote the campaign's messages and it is also a great way to help start a conversation with patients about their lifestyle behaviours and encourage them to make changes to their health.
The toolkit includes: 50x conversation starters, 1x dispenser, 2x window clings, 1x poster, 1x counter card and 2x shelf barkers.
Call 0300 123 1019 to order your toolkit. The order line is open Monday to Friday from 8am to 6pm until 8th May 2016, whilst stocks last.
