Health Champion

All Community Pharmacies in Devon have the opportunity to receive an HEE-funded distance-learning course through Devon Local Pharmaceutical Committee for a Health Champion.

It has been announced that the Quality Payment Scheme is to be extended for at least the first half of 2018/19 with a review date on June 29. In order to claim the payment for HLP status, all criteria must be met at the point of the claim.

Every Healthy Living Pharmacy (HLP) requires a full-time equivalent1 qualified Health Champion who has attained the Royal Society for Public Health’s Level 2 Award in Understanding Health Improvement. The role of Health Champion is an important one and is normally undertaken by a member of the medicines counter team or healthcare assistant.

Devon Local Pharmaceutical Committee (LPC) recognises the difference HLPs can make to the health and wellbeing of the communities they serve and are fully funding up to two Health Champion distance-learning programmes with in-pharmacy assessment, provided by the HLP specialists.
