NHS poster campaigns

Unmissable

How to get the most important messages through to young people, where they absolutely can’t miss them?  Simple, really – have a look at this!

Too cool for school?

At the ripe old age of 11, I decided that the fastest way to manly cool was the futuristic brushed metal and black packaging of the newly launched Lambert & Butler cigarettes.

Don’t mock; it was 1978.  In a time when Roger Moore somehow got away with playing James Bond, electro-pop meant the Electric Light Orchestra and fashionable men had centre partings, it wasn’t just my idea of cool pre-teen rebellion that was a bit misplaced.  And I really needed to rebel, because my mum wouldn’t let me see Grease.
Cool may have moved on – or even gone full circle – but the reasons teenagers take up smoking are still pretty much the same.  It’s cool, and it’s for adults only.

NHS Life Check – A Repeat Prescription!

We are delighted that the NHS was so pleased by the results of its Life Check campaign in June that it decided to re-book in September.

The poster campaign included all schools and youth clubs in specific English Primary Care Trust areas.

The Life Check website addresses anxieties & life questions facing young people.

It looks at issues of identity as well as attitudes to physical activity, healthy living, drugs and alcohol, smoking, sex and bullying.

The second booking is a real vote of confidence in our member clubs and schools and a great start to the new academic year.
