PLANNING

Start planning and plan starting...

 

In our first weekly HLP Countdown update we would like to encourage you to commit to becoming an HLP in time for the Quality Payment claim on the 24th November. This may sound like it is some time away but action now will ensure you can claim the £1280 payment and start enjoying the many benefits of being an HLP. Self-declaration is required before 10th November to ensure you are registered with RSPH before the QPS deadline.

 

It is completely possible to achieve HLP self-declaration between now and then but it will need planning, commitment and focus. Our aim is to make this straight-forward whilst maintaining the integrity and quality associated with being an HLP.

 

Key actions this week:

 

1. Check HLP part 1 requirements
