NHS England health promotion campaigns

An important part of the community pharmacy contractual framework is that pharmacies participate in up to six campaigns specified by NHS England per year.

NHSE has yet  to announce pharmacy campaigns for 2020/21 beyond Help Us Help You Pharmacy campaign mid February to mid-March

In 2019/20 all community pharmacy teams need to participate in the following campaigns, by ensuring that:

  • staff are aware of the key messages
  • appropriate materials are displayed for a least a month over the appropriate period.
1.        Mid-February to mid-March Help Us Help You Pharmacy campaign (formerly Stay Well Pharmacy) 
2.        Mid-May to mid-June Children’s oral health/Smile Month
3.        September Antimicrobial resistance
4.        October Stoptober
5.        November/December Help Us Help You main campaign (formerly Stay Well this Winter)
6.        January 2020 Alcohol

Additional campaigns may be sent out from other parties, such as local public health teams, and where possible we encourage contractors  to support these local campaigns.
