Encouraging men to ‘ask a pharmacist’

Men were encouraged to not be shy about asking pharmacists for advice in a special event at The Shay.

Community Pharmacy West Yorkshire staff organised the event as part of Ask Your Pharmacist Week, to give men information on services they can receive from their local pharmacy. One of the organisers Nigel Hughes said: “We want men to take control of their medicines and wellbeing. Fewer men than women take advantage of the free professional advice from pharmacies.”
