Stay Well Pharmacy campaign launch

‘Stay Well Pharmacy’ is a new campaign from NHS England which encourages people, especially parents and carers of children under the age of 5, to visit their local pharmacy team first for minor health concerns such as sore throats, coughs, colds, tummy troubles, teething and aches and pains.

Community pharmacists and pharmacy technicians are qualified healthcare professionals, and are the right people to see if you need clinical advice, reassurance, over the counter medicines and even a private consultation room, should it be requested, to help safely manage a range of minor health concerns. The campaign reminds people that local pharmacy teams offer fast and convenient clinical support with no appointment needed.

Search nhs.uk/staywellpharmacy for more information and to help you find your nearest NHS pharmacy services and opening hours.
