All pharmacies are now required to become HLP level one as part of the Community Pharmacy Contractual Framework.

The Healthy Living Pharmacy (HLP) framework is a tiered commissioning framework aimed at achieving consistent delivery of a broad range of high quality services through community pharmacies to meet local need, improving the health and wellbeing of the local population and helping to reduce health inequalities.

The HLP framework is underpinned by three enablers:

  • workforce development ‚Äď a skilled team to pro-actively support and promote behaviour change, improving health and wellbeing;
  • premises that are fit for purpose; and
  • engagement with the local community, other health professionals (especially GPs), social care and public health professionals and local authorities

We have produced this document which provides you with relevant local information to help you achieve HLP level one.
