Why this is notable practice
The pharmacy is clearly promoting information on how the public can make their own face coverings to help prevent the spread of coronavirus and protect NHS resources.
How the pharmacy did this
Following recent government guidance that people should wear face coverings when in enclosed public spaces and when using public transport, the pharmacy had received an increasing number of requests for face masks from the public. The pharmacy team had created a poster using information from the government website showing various designs that people could use to make their own face coverings. This was placed in the window so that people waiting could see it.
What difference this made to patients
The public are given advice on using and making appropriate face coverings without using valuable resources required by the NHS and carers.
