Event description

Description

Please note the change of venue and start time.

The first Health Champion meeting of 2018 will be taking place on Wednesday 21st February at the City Library, starting at 10am.

We're pleased to have Sarah Hulse and Andre Yeung from the public health team attending to run a training session about brief advice for alcohol. We're all comfortable about discussing smoking with patients and customers but how comfortable are you discussing their alcohol consumption? The session will give very practical hints and tips for having conversations and giving advice about alcohol consumption.

In addition, Sarah has funded the printing of alcohol scratchcards which will be distributed at the meeting. These provide an easy opportunity to engage in conversations about alcohol consumption and will support you to run a two week alcohol awareness public health campaign following the meeting. There will be a prize for the pharmacy which demonstrates the most effective campaign.

If you as Health Champion are unable to attend, please have a colleague come along to the meeting. If your pharmacy isn't represented, you won't receive your scratchcards.

We look forward to seeing you.
