Men's health - an opportunity

Up to HLP forum
October 29. 2012

Dear all

You may be aware that Portsmouth HLPs' had significant success engaging with men on their health and wellbeing and so the following may be of interest to your HLPs locally if you are not already aware. Most pharmacies will have received materials to support them in engaging with men, so please encourage them to make the most of the materials and capture the difference they make (see audit materials)! Finally we can use great news stories so please do let us know what goes on!

Ask Your Pharmacist Week (5-12 November) is part of the NPA’s ongoing work to highlight the advice, support and services available through community pharmacies.  Evaluation of last year’s AYP Week showed a marked rise in public awareness.  This year, the focus is on making men more aware of the support they can access in pharmacies. NPA members will by now have received a free supply of leaflets and ‘Two Steps for Man’ window posters.  Go to www.npa.co.uk/ayp2012 for information on how to get involved.  You may wish to use Ask Your Pharmacist Week as a platform for conducting an audit of men’s use of your pharmacy. Audit forms and further information on how to complete the audit can be downloaded at www.npa.co.uk/ayp2012.  If you have any questions about this year’s AYP campaign, please email s.white@npa.co.uk.

 

Kind regards

Deborah
