Pharmacy Advice

On 4 February 2019, NHS England will launch a Help Us Help You ‘Pharmacy Advice’ campaign, which will position pharmacies as the first place to go to for advice on minor health concerns, such as coughs, colds, tummy troubles and aches and pains.

Research shows that 27% of general practice appointments in England could potentially be treated elsewhere and approximately 18 million of these could be treated through self-care and community pharmacies*. This campaign seeks to address this by highlighting to the public the minor health concerns which can be treated by pharmacists as well as the services offered by their local pharmacy team (such as administration of flu jabs, advice on quitting smoking and how to take new medication.)
