A new report – Everyday Interactions – and corresponding toolkit aim to support healthcare professionals to record and measure their public health impact. 

Published by Public Health England (PHE) and the Royal Society for Public Health (RSPH), the resources aim to provide healthcare professionals with simple, quick and effective guidelines for recording and measuring the impact of their activities on the public’s health and demonstrating to commissioners and others the huge potential that exists to improve and protect the public’s health through brief interventions such as signposting.

Commenting on the toolkit, Gul Root, PHE’s lead public health pharmacist, said: “Community pharmacy teams play a vital role in supporting people to look after their health and regularly provide timely health promoting support and advice. This is often seen as being part of their everyday practice so this toolkit will help them document and measure their invaluable contribution to improving the nation’s health.”
