Within a community pharmacy, Health Champions (HCs) are members of the pharmacy team who are trained and accredited to provide customers with health and wellbeing advice. The key role of an HC is to provide customers with information about their health and signpost them to other community services (e.g. commissioned NHS Enhanced & Locally Commissioned Pharmacy Services) that will help them to adopt healthier lifestyles and access the support they need. HCs have achieved the Royal Society for Public Health (RPSH) Understanding Health Improvement Level 2 accreditation.
