Support your local community this winter by delivering Winter Health Services.

It’s beginning to get to that time of year again where the weather is getting much colder and we begin to see the transition of seasons change from autumn to winter.

This is also the time of year that your customers will be relying on you to help ease symptoms of cough, colds, sore throats and flu and other ailments related to winter health.

Why provide a Winter Health Service in your pharmacy?

Community pharmacy plays an essential role in supporting people to stay well over the winter months and is often the place to turn to when feeling under the weather. During the pandemic, it became imperative that customers leant on you for support with minor ailments instead of reaching out to their GP, and this year it will be no different. You and your team are experts in providing advice and recommending treatments that are inexpensive to help reduce the discomfort of minor illnesses such as colds and coughs.

Providing a Winter Health Service will help to expand your service portfolio and has many advantages – it will not only act as an additional income generator, but customers will recognise the excellent service and access your pharmacy again, promoting customer loyalty to you.
