Public Health England (PHE), with the support of NHS England, launched a new national campaign to encourage all eligible women to not ignore their cervical screening invite or if they have missed their last cervical screening, to book an appointment with their GP practice.
This national campaign runs from 5th March – 28th April. It’s been suggested by public health departments that in Coventry and Warwickshire the campaign is focused on the week commencing 8th April for maximum coordinated impact, but of course, pharmacies are free to choose when they wish to participate.
This is NOT a mandated campaign but an important one nevertheless, which can save many lives, so we urge pharmacies to promote the initiative.
Resource materials can be ordered from PHE on the following links:
Although the Pharmacy Packs seem to be out of stock at the moment, you can still order the individual materials and some digital resources are also available to download.
Here’s a direct link to the Pharmacy Briefing Sheet, which you might find useful.
Links to these campaign resources are also available on our WEBSITE.
We hope you will be able to support this important health campaign.
