(HLP)Healthy Living Pharmacy
HLP as an Essential service requirement in 2020/21
Community pharmacy contractors were required to become an HLP in 2020/21 as agreed in the five-year CPCF; this reflects the priority attached to public health and prevention work.
The NHS Terms of Service have been amended to include HLP requirements, with supplementary information on the details being included in guidance on the regulations, published by NHS England. Pharmacy contractors must ensure they are compliant with the HLP requirements from 1st January 2021, however the Distance Selling Pharmacy (DSP) website requirements do not have to be complied with until 1st April 2021.
