A campaign by NHS England and Public Health England designed to increase the public’s trust in community pharmacies as providers of healthcare starts next week.

As part of the initiative, known as ‘Help us help you’ which starts on February 4, a pharmacy advice campaign began this week which will see resource packs sent to all community pharmacies.

According to the National Pharmacy Association, printed branded resources will be sent to all community pharmacies in England over the next few days, including a double-sided window sticker, wobblers, poster, information cards and a dispenser.

The ‘Help us help you’ scheme will try and bolster public confidence in community pharmacies as places people can go for minor illnesses such as coughs and colds.
