The PSNC website includes comprehensive details regarding Healthy Living Pharmacy which can be accessed here:  https://psnc.org.uk/services-commissioning/locally-commissioned-services/healthy-living-pharmacies/

  

What is a Healthy Living Pharmacy?

The concept of a Healthy Living Pharmacy is a pharmacy that:

  • Delivers a broad range of services to a high quality and consistently, whatever the day of the week or month of the year
  • Has a team that are pro-active in supporting health and wellbeing, with the community's health at the centre of what it does
  • Promotes healthy living and wellbeing as a core activity
  • Supports people with long-term conditions
  • Is accessible and  approachable
  • Is valued and trusted
  • Maintains premises to a high professional standard with private consultation facilities and IT linked to local practices when available
  • Works closely with other healthcare providers, reactively and proactively; and will be identifiable to the public and other healthcare professionals
 

To achieve the Healthy Living Pharmacy status pharmacies need to demonstrate three key areas of development:

  • Developing workforce - includes having Health Living Champions (HLC) and developing leadership skills.
  • Environment - includes having suitable premises, consultation room(s), health promotion area and IT capability.
  • Multidisciplinary engagement - working with GPs, Commissioners and other provider service.
