'Meet your local team' theme for Ask Your Pharmacist week
The theme of this year’s Ask Your Pharmacist week will be ‘Meet Your Local Pharmacy Team’, the National Pharmacy Association has announced. The campaign is due to run from 30 October to 6 November.
Held annually across the UK, Ask Your Pharmacist week aims to raise awareness of pharmacy services and to prompt conversations with stakeholders at a local level about community pharmacy’s role and benefits.
Pharmacies are encouraged to engage in local activities ranging from window displays and social media to projects with patient groups, radio and TV interviews and visits to pharmacies by local dignitaries and politicians.
“AYP Week 2023 will familiarise people with the skills of the pharmacist and the wider community pharmacy workforce, and how the team works together to provide a safe and effective service, including NHS clinical care,” explains NPA head of communications Stephen Fishwick.
“As usual, the NPA will supply campaign materials for our members and others wanting to take part in this long running initiative.”
More details will be published soon. Meanwhile, any NPA member or pharmacy stakeholders wishing to get involved should email Stephen Fishwick at email@example.com
