HEE: Free resources for pharmacy teams

Free resources for pharmacy teams:

Patient-friendly information on Coronavirus for healthcare

Accessible, high-quality information on COVID-19 is available in one place to make it easy for the pharmacy workforce in all care settings to find trusted information they can use with patients, families, carers and customers, quickly and easily.

Selected by HEE’s national NHS Knowledge and Library Services team, Library.nhs.uk/coronavirus-resources provides a gateway to the best available resources, gathered from a range of relevant health and third sector providers.

Updated regularly, the tailored content includes materials aimed at specific groups such as children and young people, older people and carers and for people with cancer or long-term conditions as well as providing resources in different accessible formats.  Most recently sections have been added on long-COVID and vaccination.
