Dear Pharmacy Team,
This message is to let you know about your next NHS England commissioned Public Health Campaign which starts on 1st February 2019 and runs for 1 month.
Very soon you will receive a letter and poster from NHS England with more information about the campaign. You will then receive everything else you need to run the ‘Love Your Heart’ campaign from the BHF and PHE (leaflets and posters) in time for February. The attached shows the resources you will receive from the BHF and PHE. This is one of the six Public Health campaigns running for 2019.
The objective of this campaign is to have a million conversations with people about CVD prevention through community pharmacies here in North Cumbria and the North East. Please ensure the whole team is briefed about the campaign and how to engage in brief advice conversations using the materials provided. Moreover, this campaign will start a wider conversation about how community pharmacy can help tackle CVD in England.
Thank you in advance for your support with this February campaign.
Please see below for the letter from NHS England and all relevant resources to help with your campaign:
Please remember take record all the conversations weekly on Pharmoutcomes as well as take photographs of your campaigns as evidence. NHS England has asked us to collect some photographs so please email these to info@communitypharmacy cumbria.org.
