PSNC Briefing 052/18: Quality Payments – How to achieve the Healthy Living Pharmacy quality criterion (October 2018)

Please note, this Briefing is now out of date and has been replaced by PSNC Briefing 033/19: How to become a Healthy Living Pharmacy Level 1 (August 2019).

This PSNC Briefing provides an overview of how to achieve the Healthy Living Pharmacy (HLP) quality criterion of the Quality Payments Scheme for the February 2019 review point.

Contractors are reminded that if their pharmacy was accredited as an HLP Level 1 locally or through the profession led self-assessment process this accreditation is only valid for two years. Therefore, if contractors were accredited before 16th February 2017, the will need to re-accredit their pharmacy as an HLP to meet the quality criterion on the day of the review (15th February 2019). The ‘How to meet this quality criterion’ section on page 3 provides further information on the process contractors will need to follow if they need to re-accredit their pharmacy as an HLP.
