Promotion of Self-Care for Minor Conditions by Community Pharmacies – CPSS Toolkit launched.


Community Pharmacy Surrey & Sussex have produced our Promotion of Self-Care for Minor Conditions by Community Pharmacies CPSS Toolkit to assist community pharmacists and their teams around the national initiative for the promotion of self-care for minor conditions by community pharmacies.

It includes:

  • What is the Guidance on the prescribing of Over the Counter (OTC) medicines?
  • Conditions for which OTC items should not routinely be prescribed in primary care
  • Information and resources to support community pharmacies in having conversations with patients, local GP practices and CCG colleagues
  • How can community pharmacies support people to Self-Care for Minor Conditions via Community Pharmacy?
  • Training and resources available to community pharmacy staff to help the pharmacy team support people to Self-Care for Minor Conditions via Community Pharmacy.
