Planning ahead for winter in community pharmacy

As we plan ahead for winter, community pharmacy must remain vigilant and safe regarding COVID-19 and maintain its focus on infection control and prevention.

In order to be prepared, NHS England and NHS Improvement encourage all pharmacies to sign up for the national PPE portal, if not done so already, as an important emergency supply route. Pharmacies will need to do this via their original invitation email.

This winter pharmacies will need to take part in two health campaigns – the public facing campaign to encourage people to get vaccinated against flu begins in early October.

The national flu campaign resources will be delivered to all pharmacies in early October. Please register here to download any additional resources.
