Public Health Campaigns

Steady On...Stay SAFE

“Steady on…Stay SAFE” is a national falls prevention campaign which focuses on three key messages to help people reduce their risk of falling.
Stay active and stay strong
If you fall, tell someone
Watch your step – be aware of trip hazards.

Purpose of the Campaign 

The campaign has three main aims:
1. To raise awareness of some of the risks associated with falling with your patients and customers. This is aimed at people who have suffered a fall and also people who have not fallen “never fallers”.
 
2. To provide simple education, support and signposting to people for simple measures people can take to lower their risk of falling.  
 
3. To target MUR provision during February 2017 (if capacity) on patients taking medicines associated with increased risk of falling.
 
The campaign has been designed to provide opportunities for the whole pharmacy team to become involved.

Contractors will recieve campaign packs week commencing 23rd January 2017. If you do not recieve your pack by 2nd February 2017, please contact the Community Pharmacy Wales office.
