Reminder: Finish of AMR campaign and commencement of Stoptober

September 26, 2019

Community pharmacy contractors are reminded that the antimicrobial resistance (AMR) campaign, which contractors have been participating in (since the 1st September 2019), finishes on 30th September 2019. Contractors will then be required to change their promotional materials on 1st October 2019 and participate in the Stoptober campaign until 31st October 2019.

The campaigns are two of the six campaigns, which have been agreed between PSNC and NHS England and NHS Improvement, as part of the Community Pharmacy Contractual Framework; therefore, all contractors must participate in both of them.

Contractors should have been sent campaign materials for both campaigns during August (materials started arriving in pharmacies by courier from 14th August 2019).

Social media and digital resources for the Stoptober campaign are also available on PHE’s Campaign Resource Centre; contractors are encouraged to use these resources if possible.
