CPCF Health Campaigns agreed for 2020/21

September 19, 2020

Each year, pharmacies are required to participate in up to six public health campaigns at the request of NHS England and NHS Improvement (NHSE&I). The topics of these campaigns are agreed by NHSE&I and PSNC.

At the start of 2020/21 we agreed that the campaigns would be suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We have now agreed that community pharmacies will need to participate in two health campaigns during the rest of 2020/21, the first of which will be the annual campaign which encourages eligible people to get vaccinated against flu.

This campaign will begin in early October with campaign resources being delivered to pharmacies at that time (further details on the campaign materials and delivery schedule will be published when they are available).

A second campaign, which will focus on the management of winter illnesses, is expected to take place in the New Year; further details will be provided on the timings of this campaign as soon as they are confirmed.
