NEW HEALTHY LIVING PHARMACY

Following the publication of Public Health England’s (PHE) new ‘Healthy Living Pharmacy Level 1 Quality Criteria’ and ‘Assessment of Compliance’, Hampshire and Isle of White LPC and Hampshire County Council are pleased to launch this Healthy Living Pharmacy (HLP) Guide, marking a real drive toward increasing and developing HLPs across Hampshire.

The Guide is an update to the previous Prospectus and marks the next step in the journey across Hampshire to increase the number of accredited HLPs. This comes at a time when the new funding arrangements, and in particular the introduction of the Quality Payment mechanism, encourages pharmacies to become HLP accredited.

The LPC has now announced a new initiative with a local partner organisation to support pharmacies in Hampshire to become HLP. We are focussing on Hampshire because this is the part of the LPC geography with the biggest opportunity. It has the lowest prevalance of existing HLPs in our area and yet has the highest number of pharmacies.

However, we hope this guide will be of use to any pharmacy looking to convert, or indeed revisit their HLP status, and would encourage you to look out for the ' soon to be published' information on the exciting next stage of this journey.

We have also attached some useful guidance on the role of the Health Champion that has been produced by our partnes at Pharmacy Complete. This provides information on their role, their characteristics and qualities and how to access training which we hope will be of help to any contractor seeking to identify suitable candidates within their team to take on this important position.

Finally, we thought contractors and their teams would find it helpful to see a process map of what the Hampshire HLP & Pharmacy Complete route to accreditation looks like. Attached to this web page is a 'plan on a page' showing the steps of the journey. We hope you will be inspired to join us on it!
