Ask Your Pharmacist Week - 2nd - 9th November 2020
This week is Ask Your Pharmacist week 2020. Ask Your Pharmacist week is the annual public awareness campaign for community pharmacy across the UK and this year is taking place between 2nd -9th November 2020. This year's theme is ‘Your local pharmacy in the NHS family’. According to an opinion survey carried out for the NPA in June, only 29% of people are “definitely aware” that community pharmacies are part of the NHS, despite the fact that pharmacies are the most visited of all settings where NHS care is offered.
This year’s Ask Your Pharmacist Week is a chance to further establish in the public’s mind the fact that community pharmacies are a key member of the NHS family. The better it’s understood that community pharmacies are part of the NHS team, the more people will be willing to a

Over 65 Flu Vaccines have arrived!
If you are over 65 there could now be a flu vaccine with your name on it. Our over 65 flu vaccines have arrived and our service is underway. Anyone can catch the flu and spread it to others. Most people recover within a week but for anyone in the NHS at-risk categories, flu can mean hospitalisation, serious complications such as pneumonia, or can even be life threatening. If you have an underlying health condition, the flu may also make your condition worse.
Symptoms can include fever, chills, headache, muscle pain, extreme fatigue, a dry cough, sore throat and stuffy nose.
