The requirement for Healthy Living Pharmacies (HLPs) to reassess against the HLP Quality Criteria has moved from every two years to every three years. More information is available on the PSNC website.
With HLP becoming an essential requirement in the community pharmacy contractual framework from April 2020, monitoring will fall under NHS England Community Pharmacy Assurance Framework so maintaining the criteria remains a key requirement. This evidenced capability will become increasingly important as new prevention services are commissioned either nationally or locally through PCN service sub-contracting or local public health.
Pharmacy Complete can support pharmacy contractors to become, maintain and build on the HLP criteria. Please see our HLP page by clicking here.
