This course provides pharmacies with the information and regulated qualification you need to register as a Healthy Living Pharmacy - mandatory from 1 April 2020.
What is a Healthy Living Pharmacy?
The Healthy Living Pharmacy (HLP) framework encourages pharmacies to improve the health and wellbeing of the local population and helps to reduce health inequalities within communities.
From 1 April 2020, all community pharmacies in the UK will need to gain or maintain existing status as a HLP Level 1. And existing HLPs are required to re-accredit their HLP Level 1 status every three years. The criteria for the HLP Level 1 self-assessment process have been developed by the Healthy Living Pharmacy Task Group of the Pharmacy and Public Health Forum, Public Health England.
The RSPH Level 2 Understanding Health Improvement for Healthy Living Pharmacies will allow you to gain the qualification and assessment you need to become a HLP in a way that works around your schedule.
