Communication resources for system partners
It's important that Frimley Health and Care partners are able to share messages through their organisations, with their patients, service users and with their staff.
This section of the website will be used to host various materials relating to different health and care campaigns.
You can download the assets for each campaign and share via your social media channels, websites and newsletters.
Platinum Jubilee weekend
With celebrations planned over the Platinum Jubilee weekend, we have to plan for an expected increase in demand to services.
Please use the resources below across your channels to remind local residents to be prepared in the lead up to the bank holiday, raise awareness of local pharmacy opening times during this period and a reminder to celebrate with care and if you need medical advice to contact NHS 111 online first.
May Measurement Month
Health and care services across Frimley Health and Care are raising awareness about the importance of knowing your numbers and regularly checking your blood pressure.
Helping people to tackle the hidden danger of high blood pressure is part of Frimley Health and Care’s ‘Living Well’ ambition, which is a programme aimed at supporting all people to have the opportunity to live healthier lives, no matter where they live or what their circumstances are. The ambition is for everyone to have more years of healthy life, with more opportunities in education, work, accommodation, with healthier lifestyle choices and increased wellbeing.
We have developed a number of resources to support this campaign so please share them across all of your channels and across your networks.
Think NHS 111 first
Help play your part and think NHS 111 First when you need urgent, but not life-threatening, care, to help manage demand on urgent and emergency care services this winter.
Winter pressures on the NHS are well recognised and we all have a responsibility to help ensure that emergency services are used appropriately.
“Pharmacies continued to be open throughout the pandemic and remain a vital lifeline for their communities. Many people are unaware of the wide range of services available from their local pharmacist.
We have developed a specific communications pack to remind residents that local pharmacists are trained medical professional who can provide free advice on the best treatment for a wide range of illnesses and minor ailments.
We have developed web copy, social media messages, images and a video.

Across Frimley Health and Care that there is a Minor Injuries Unit at Bracknell Healthspace. Available 7 days a week, 8am-8pm, as well as x-ray services (except for Saturday’s). This service is available to all residents, no matter where they live, and even if they may need to travel a little further than their nearest A&E, they will most likely be seen and treated a lot faster at the minor injuries unit.
