The Royal Pharmaceutical Society is working with other national pharmacy organisations ahead of a campaign day on Tuesday 21 November to highlight the role of community pharmacy in helping people to stay healthy through winter.
The ‘Pharmacy Winter’ campaign aims to:
- promote the roles that community pharmacy teams already play in helping people to stay healthy through winter and reducing pressure on other NHS services;
- warn of the risks if any of these services are lost; and
- highlight the many additional roles that community pharmacies could play in helping people and the NHS through the winter months.
There are different ways that community pharmacy teams can get involved, either on social media or by encouraging your local MP to attend a drop-in session in Parliament.
