Health during Covid the focus for latest Living Well campaign
The latest Living Well campaign - “Looking after your health and wellbeing during Covid-19” – gets underway through pharmacies in Northern Ireland this week.
The campaign will focus on promoting key public health messages to help patients cope with the current Covid-19 pandemic, and will include advice on curbing the spread of coronavirus, what to do if you have symptoms, use of the StopCovid app, looking after your mental health and the importance of the flu vaccine.
Pharmacies should expect the campaign resource pack to be delivered during the week commencing 5 October.
The “Living Well” programme provides key public health messages and advice through community pharmacies that are contracted to provide the service. The campaign schedule aligns with public health priorities. Community pharmacies display information and provide advice on targeted campaign topics to patients presenting prescriptions and to customers.
Work through a customer consultation to determine the possible cause of stinging, gritty eyes and recommend an effective treatment to help ease these symptoms.
