Mandatory Pharmacy Public Health Campaign topics and information for 2019/20
As part of the Community Pharmacy Contractual Framework, each year pharmacies are required participate in up to six campaigns at the request of NHS England.
Previously, these campaigns were determined at a local level by NHS England teams, however PSNC has agreed with NHS England to set these campaigns at a national level so that all community pharmacy contractors participate in the same campaigns thus having a greater exposure to the target groups.
It has been agreed that the campaign topics should, wherever possible, support NHS England’s operational and public health priorities, such as winter pressures, smoking, obesity and alcohol.

Dental factsheets for pharmacy teams
The Health Education England (HEE) teams across London and the South East have collaborated to produce a series of dental factsheets specifically for community pharmacy teams. They are intended to be used by patient-facing team members to help them deal with common dental and oral symptoms/conditions and signpost patients where appropriate. Download the resources here
