Two weeks to go until #pharmacywinter campaigning day


Two weeks to go until #pharmacywinter campaigning day

November 7, 2017

The upcoming pharmacy political campaigning day on Tuesday 21st November is now just two weeks away, and there are lots of ways that community pharmacy teams can get involved.

The action day will focus on community pharmacy and winter pressures, aiming to promote the role that community pharmacy can play in helping people to stay healthy through winter and reducing pressure on other NHS services.

The day will offer a chance to renew media and political interest in community pharmacy, and community pharmacy teams will play a vital role in that. There are lots of ways to get involved, whether by adding a Twibbon to your social media account, joining our Tweetchat, or inviting a local councillor to visit your pharmacy.

The full range of campaigning resources for community pharmacy teams and LPCs, which have been developed by the PSNC Communications Team and include template Tweets and press releases, are available from the winter campaign hub: (or by clicking the #pharmacywinter logo on the homepage).
