Healthy Living Pharmacy: Health promotion ideas for pharmacy teams

Welcome to the health promotion ideas page. The page provides links to different topics which pharmacy teams can use as a focus for their Healthy Living Pharmacy (HLP) Health Promotion Zone or they can be used in other health promotion work within and outside the pharmacy depending on the needs of the local community.

As outlined in the Healthy Living Pharmacy Level 1 quality criteria, HLPs and pharmacies aspiring to be an HLPs are expected to undertake community outreach initiatives or in-pharmacy promotional campaigns.

PSNC Briefing 011/17: Healthy Living Pharmacy – Holding a health promotion event/campaign provides guidance for community pharmacy contractors and their teams on holding a health promotion event/campaign.

The HLP quality criteria state that an HLP’s Health Promotion Zone resources should be updated at least every two months to ensure information provided is relevant, up-to-date and appropriate. It should:

  • be clearly marked and accessible;
  • have a professional appearance; and
  • be appropriately equipped with up-to-date professional health and wellbeing information that meets the local public health needs.

More information on health awareness days can be found here.

This page is ‘work in progress’ and new topics will continue to be added.

Further information on HLPs can be found at: psnc.org.uk/hlp
