NHS asking local Lambeth groups to help promote its self-care campaign

The NHS Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is running an awareness campaign to highlight recent changes to NHS practice designed to simplify how patients access a number of NHS services.  These changes are designed to give patients more control in managing a number of common medical conditions and getting treatment for various minor ailments.  The changes include easier access to travel vaccines and malaria prevention medicines.

The Lambeth NHS CCG has a range of promotional material - posters and leaflets - to help communicate these changes to colleagues, patients, service users and local residents.  It is asking local groups to help spread the word about these changes and can supply them with these promotional materials.  It is asking groups to consider printing and displaying the posters and using the materials in their publications and providing a link to further information on the CCG website.
