Independent pharmacy chain Numark has launched an online hub to help its members deliver health campaigns in their stores.
The company said its new Health Promotion Library provides resources including briefing sheets on certain health topics with advice on engaging customers, a calendar of national health promotions, campaign materials and a guide on how to set up a health promotion. This is in addition to the face-to-face workshops and webinars available to members, said Numark.
In addition members in England and Northern Ireland can access information and support to help become a Healthy Living Pharmacy (HLP) or Health + Pharmacy (Northern Ireland).
Hina Joshi, professional development facilitator at Numark and curator of the new library, said: “Our health promotion library has been designed with our members in mind. Health promotions are a way of ‘planting the seed’ in people’s minds to make better choices and take a responsibility towards their own health. Simply asking “What’s your thoughts on our campaign this week?” is a great way to engage with people.”
