(HLP)Healthy Living Pharmacy

Key requirements that must be met before becoming a HLP Level 1

The following requirements must be met before a pharmacy can be registered as a HLP Level 1, therefore contractors should ensure that they meet the requirements before they start working their way through the quality criteria:

  • the pharmacy has a consultation room which is compliant with the Advanced Services standards and is appropriate for the services on offer;
  • in the past year, the pharmacy has participated in the provision of both Medicines Use Reviews (MURs) and the New Medicine Service (NMS), and has proactively engaged in health promoting conversations;
  • in the past year, the pharmacy has participated in the provision of the NHS Community Pharmacy Seasonal Influenza Vaccination Advanced Service or has actively referred patients to other NHS providers of vaccinations;
  • the pharmacy complies with the General Pharmaceutical Council’s Standards for Registered Premises and Standards of Conduct, Ethics and Performance http://www.pharmacyregulation.org/standards); and
  • the pharmacy complies with the NHS Community Pharmacy Contractual Framework requirements (psnc.org.uk/contract).
