This assessment process provides pharmacists with a framework to demonstrate to they comply with the requirements in the Healthy Living Pharmacy Level 1 Quality Criteria
The new profession-led Healthy Living Pharmacy Level 1 (HLP L1) process builds on the fact that pharmacists are regulated professionals, responsible and accountable for maintaining and improving the quality of the services and advice they and their team provide.
This assessment process provides pharmacists with a framework to demonstrate to themselves, their employers, and service commissioners that they, their team and their pharmacy comply with the requirements in the Healthy Living Pharmacy Level 1 Quality Criteria.
This section of the framework relates to key requirements that the pharmacy must have in place before HLP Level 1 status can be granted and the HLP logo displayed. You must be able to indicate YES to all statements below by ticking the appropriate box in order to be compliant.
This section of the framework asks you to state the evidence you possess in the pharmacy, which you can use to demonstrate compliance with the requirements below. Evidence must be provided against all requirements.
Please provide a brief description of evidence in response to each statement. Please refer to the HLP Level 1 Quality Criteria for the kinds of evidence you could refer to.
Statement 3: the pharmacy team is led by an effective leader, trained in leadership skills, who is pro-actively leading the team in attaining and maintaining provision of interventions to meet the HLP quality criteria. PHE Health Profiles: the health profiles give a snapshot overview of health for each local authority in England.
Statement 4: staff are able to provide advice on sensitive/difficult public health issues (e.g. when providing advice on alcohol consumption, sexual health issues).
Statement 1: staff proactively offer advice to their customers/patients and make relevant brief health advice or interventions. They are aware that people may need additional support for behavioural change.
Statement 3: the pharmacy is actively involved in 6 public health campaigns (as part of the Community Pharmacy Contractual Framework (CPCF)).
