Public Health England is relaunching its ‘One You Active 10’ campaign and is asking pharmacies to help promote it.

The campaign was first launched in 2017 and encourages adults across England to incorporate more physical activity into their life by simply going for a brisk ten-minute walk (or more) every day. The ‘Active 10’ campaign will be relaunched on June 4 with a national PR campaign and advertising.

PSNC has said that a new toolkit is available which community pharmacy teams can use “to aid conversations with patients about increasing physical activity, what they can do to get more active and the benefits this brings to their health.”

The toolkit contains:

  • a pharmacy brief (A4) – with information about the campaign and the use of resources;
  • a pharmacy poster (A4) – for display at till points on countertops;
  • conversation starters – for display in busy areas where they’ll be seen;
  • a conversation starter dispenser.

“Pharmacy teams who are working towards or have already achieved Healthy Living Pharmacy (HLP) Level 1 status could consider participating in the campaign to help demonstrate that they meet several of the required HLP Level 1 quality criteria,” said PSNC.

A PSNC Briefing 011/17: ‘Healthy Living Pharmacy – Holding a health promotion event/campaign’, includes a checklist to assist pharmacy teams when planning a health promotion event/campaign and a template questionnaire which pharmacy teams could use to evaluate their health promotion event/campaign.
