Mandated health campaigns - 2021/22

Every financial year (1st April to 31st March) pharmacies in England are required to participate in up to six health campaigns at the request of NHS England & Improvement (NHSE&I).

These campaigns form part of the National Pharmacy Contract and are mandatory.

All members should have received campaign materials from NHSE&I to support the current Winter Vaccines campaign. Should you not have received these materials by 1st December 2021, please email stating your pharmacy’s name, address and the name of the campaign that you are missing materials for.

Below is an overview of the four planned mandated campaigns that all pharmacies must participate in for the remainder of 2021/22:
