Health Champions, the stars of HLP...
Health Champions live and breathe the ethos of Healthy Living Pharmacy (HLP). Every HLP must have at least one full-time-equivalent Health Champion who must have successfully completed the RSPH Level 2 Award in Understanding Health Improvement.
Their role includes:
- proactively promoting healthy lifestyle information
- planning and co-ordinating the pharmacy's health campaign programme
- offering advice and support to individuals including, where appropriate, signposting to other community-based services
- engaging with their community
- understanding local health needs
- may deliver health and wellbeing services.
Pharmacy Complete offer a range of support for Health Champions including RSPH health and wellbeing courses, a Health Campaign subscription service and our Championing Health Knowledge and Sensitive Conversation Cards to help them proactively promote healthy lifestyles. We have also created a Health Champion Community on Facebook where you can hear the latest news and share and learn from each other.
