HLP Champion Training

LLR are now providing ONE funded place per Contractor to support HLP Champion accreditation.

HLP Healthy Living Champion Training update

Please note that the national guidance states that (one full time equivalent) HLP champion will need to complete the training.

If you have part time staff – you will be required to train more than 1 member of staff in your pharmacy to ensure you cover the requirement.

You may have 2 or 3 part time staff to ensure you meet the full time equivalent requirement.

The LPC can only fund ONE place per pharmacy so the remaining staff will need to be self-funded. I will make arrangements for the price to be the same as the LPC price should you wish to book further places. I will send further information in due course.

This must be completed by a member of the Pharmacy Team.

HLP Champion Training RSPH guidance:

At least one member of pharmacy staff (1 Full Time Equivalent) has completed the training and assessment of the Royal Society for Public Health (RSPH) Level 2 Award in Understanding Health Improvement and is therefore a Health Champion.

This will be supported by Pharmacy Complete

On booking the elected member of your team will receive a training pack and mock exam which will take approximately 8 hours to complete
