The Professional Leadership Body for Pharmacy Technicians

On 4th February, NHS England is launching their ‘Help Us Help You’ campaign!

The aim of the campaign is to encourage the public to use their local pharmacy as their first choice of healthcare setting for clinical advice for minor health concerns such as coughs, colds, stomach problems and aches and pains. The campaign will help to further build the public’s trust and confidence in community pharmacists, pharmacy technicians and the pharmacy team as providers of care, and ensure minor illnesses are effectively managed in the right place.

Resources have been sent to all community pharmacies in England to actively promote the campaign and to inform and encourage customers to visit your pharmacy next time they need clinical advice about a minor health concern.

Why not take some time to familiarise yourself with the resources so you are ready to offer advice for people with everyday minor health concerns?

There are a range of additional free resources available to order or download. To access these resources and register for regular updates on campaigns, visit the Campaign Resource Centre.
