Children’s Oral Health Campaign – Contractual Requirement

Children’s Oral Health Campaign – Contractual Requirement

May 8, 2019

Community pharmacy contractors are required to participate in the upcoming oral health campaign, which will run between 13th May-13th June 2019. This campaign, which coincides with National Smile Month, is one of six campaigns which has been agreed as part of the Community Pharmacy Contractual Framework; therefore participation in this campaign is mandatory.

Most pharmacy teams undertook learning on children’s oral health, as part of the last Quality Payments Scheme.

PHE’s ‘A quick guide to a healthy mouth in children’ also provides a short summary of the key advice for parents and carers.

A Virtual Outcomes’ training package has been created, available HERE, which is provided free of charge to all pharmacy teams in Devon.  We would recommend contractors encourage all members of their pharmacy teams to complete this package, and look out for the Colgate Palmolive campaign pack which will be arriving in your pharmacies any day now.
