A Healthy Living Pharmacy (HLP) is one which consistently delivers a range of quality services, which are tailored to meet the needs of the local population. HLPs play a key role in reducing health inequalities and improving the health and wellbeing of the local population. To achieve HLP Level 1 status, pharmacies must meet the 27 quality criteria set by Public Health England (PHE) – including having at least one Health Champion and one member of the pharmacy team to undertake leadership training.
As a mandatory requirement of the new CPCF in England, all community pharmacies will need to become an accredited HLP by April 2020.
Participants will be sent a certificate after completion of the webinar which can be counted towards continuing professional development (CPD).
A number of our staff members were initially quite anxious about what it entailed to be a "Healthy Leader" however, these worries were quickly put to rest by the NPA's Learning & Development Pharmacist and her excellent presentation. Participation was actively encouraged and all our staff members went away comfortable with the knowledge and new skills to implement in their respective stores. I wouldn't hesitate at all in recommending this NPA training to all staff that require it.
