#PharmacyWinter campaign day

17 Nov 2017

NPA members are being urged to get behind an initiative that aims to promote the role that community pharmacy teams can play to help people stay healthy through winter.

The pharmacy winter campaign action day takes place on Tuesday, November 21, and is being backed by the NPA and other national pharmacy organisations.

The aims of the campaign are 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 period.

How to get involved

The easiest way to get involved is to take to social media and use #PharmacyWinter in your posts and conversations.

Please keep an eye on the NPA’s social media channels and share our messages and bespoke photoboards, on the day.

There is also a WePharmacists Twitterchat taking place between 8pm and 9pm on the day of the event, details of which are here.

The PSNC has also produced a number of resources that are available by clicking the following links:
