Public Health Campaigns 2018-19


Dear Pharmacist

 The promotion of healthy lifestyles is an important and mandatory part of the Community Pharmacy Terms of Service for ALL pharmacies, including distance selling pharmacies.  To be consistent with other Area Teams, in future, we will be running the campaigns over a calendar year (Jan – Dec).  Therefore there are 4 health promotion campaigns to run during the rest of 2018.

 Please see and retain attached health promotion programme 2018 for the community pharmacy contract.  This includes links to resources. 

 Monitoring

Please find enclosed a blank Data Collection form which you can annotate and use for each campaign for recording your interventions.  Completed Data Collection forms for each of the campaigns  should be retained at the pharmacy and a copy of the Summary Form should be completed for each of this year’s campaigns and following completion should be submitted as one sheet at the end of the year, by the end of January 2019, to NHS England Midlands & East (Central Midlands) (Email to; england.llrprimarycare@nhs.net)

 Without submission of the summary form there is no confirmation that a pharmacy has participated in the public health campaigns which form part of the essential services.  Pharmacies are advised to also retain their own copies as evidence for contractual monitoring.

 Thank you for your support and full and enthusiastic participation in this important and mandatory element of the pharmacy contract.

 Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any further questions relating to these campaigns.
