Public Health campaigns
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.

Unhook – Phone app for tobacco, shisha & e-cigarettes information
From 1st October 2015, the sale of e-cigarettes and e-liquids to people under the age of 18 became illegal unless the product has been licensed as a stop smoking medicine by the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA). No products are yet available. It is also became an offence for anyone over 18 to buy e-cigarettes, e-liquids and tobacco, including shisha on behalf of a young person.
In order to increase awareness of the new legislation and address the current rates of e-cigarette and shisha use, the Wellbeing Prevention and Early Help Service, has co-created a mobile phone app ‘Unhook’ in partnership with young people from across Lancashire to inform them of the facts about tobacco, shisha and e-cigarettes and how to access support to quit. This includes an ‘Into the Body’ interactive feature, savings calculator, myth busting quiz, helpful hints, tips and details of relevant tobacco and nicotine cessation services to stay addiction-free.
The Unhook App is available for young people to download free of charge from the App Store using the link below:
