Each year pharmacies are required to participate in up to six campaigns at the request of NHS England. This involves the display and distribution of leaflets provided by NHS England. In addition, pharmacies are required to undertake prescription-linked interventions on major areas of public health concern, such as encouraging smoking cessation. (source: PSNC)
