(HLP)Healthy Living Pharmacy
The Healthy Living Pharmacy (HLP) framework is a tiered commissioning framework aimed at achieving consistent delivery of a broad range of high quality services through community pharmacies to meet local need, improving the health and wellbeing of the local population and helping to reduce health inequalities.
The HLP framework is underpinned by three enablers:
- workforce development – a skilled team to pro-actively support and promote behaviour change, improving health and wellbeing;
- premises that are fit for purpose; and
- engagement with the local community, other health professionals (especially GPs), social care and public health professionals and local authorities.
In Public Health England’s latest Healthy Living Pharmacy (HLP) newsletter, it has announced that over 8,300 pharmacies have progressed through the profession-led self-assessment process and registered with the Royal Society for Public Health (RSPH) to attain Level 1 HLP status.
HLP register – New
The Royal Society for Public Health (RSPH) is no longer accepting HLP assessments of compliance from contractors who wish to register as an HLP Level 1 (please see ‘HLP Level 1 register’ section for further details).
Quality Payments Scheme
Achieving HLP level 1 (self-assessment) is part of one of the quality criteria for the Quality Payments Scheme. Further details on the Quality Payments Scheme can be found on the Quality Payments Scheme hub on the PSNC website.
