We have been approached by a group of fourth year students from the School of Pharmacy, University of East Anglia to help them conduct a survey to obtain opinions from community pharmacists on supporting the NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme.

If you would like to take part in this survey and for a chance to win one of ten £50 vouchers, please follow the link to the online questionnaire HERE.  The questionnaire will only take 10 minutes to complete and it is completely anonymous. Should you wish take part, the deadline for completing this survey is December 14th, 2018.

For further information about the research project and on how to enter the prize draw, please read the Participant Information Sheet.

We hope you’ll find your participation in this interesting project worthwhile.



Public Health England launched the campaign pilot for Every Mind Matters in the Midlands yesterday, 10 October, to coincide with World Mental Health Day. The campaign seeks to empower people to take control of their mental health. It focuses on the things we can do to protect and improve our own mental health and how we can look out for others.

The campaign resources are available to order or download from the Public Health England website HERE.

We’ve also added the download links to the campaign resources page on our website for future reference. You can find them HERE.

We hope these resources will help you manage your health campaigns. If you need any help from the LPC, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Thank you all who attended our Information Evening last Thursday. We were very happy to see everyone and we hope the event proved to be useful and enjoyable at the same time.

For your reference, we have posted the files from the individual presentations on our website. You can view or download them HERE.

This can be especially useful for those of you who’ve missed the event, as important issues were covered by Alastair Buxton from PSNC, such as Quality Payments and FMD.

We hope to see you again soon!
