NHS ‘Help Us, Help You’ -Pharmacy Campaign

Posted by: daryl - Posted on:

A new community pharmacy-focused phase of NHS England’s ‘Help Us, Help You’ campaign has launched.

The campaign will increase the public’s awareness of the breadth of support community pharmacists can offer
to patients on their doorstep. This allows pharmacists to supply some medications for:

  • Sinusitis in those aged 12 years and over
  • Sore throat in those aged 5 years and over
  • Earache in those between 1 and 17 years old
  • Infected insect bite
  • Impetigo
  • Shingles in those over 18 years old
  • Uncomplicated urinary tract infections (UTIs) in women aged 16-64

Any suitable patients will be signposted to local pharmacists from our reception team.
