The level 2 Healthy Living Pharmacy Framework is being updated by HLP Task Group of the Pharmacy and Public Health Forum. The aim is to finalise the framework by March 2019.

Public Health England is continuing to support the Royal Society for Public Health (RSPH) to hold the HLP registry. This will include pharmacies that have progressed to Level 1 HLP status through the profession-led self-assessment process and those that have been accredited locally. The process for registering locally accredited HLPs will begin in a few weeks’ time.

The RSPH will also work with the Local Government Association to map HLPs to Local Authority level and will continue to carry out a quality assurance (QA) process. However, funding from PHE for this will cease at the end of March 2019.

There are now over 9,400 HLPs across the country.
