Healthy Living Pharmacies (HLP) across ESCC
Key support documents for you to complete your HLP Level 1 Portfolio for the Quality Payment Scheme.
An overview of how to achieve this quality criterion can be found in PSNC Briefing 052/18: Quality Payments – How to achieve the Healthy Living Pharmacy quality criterion (October 2018). Further information is also available on the HLP page on the PSNC website.
Some pharmacies/multiples will arrange for this to be done centrally, please to liaise with company managers/head office to find out the company procedure for your pharmacy.
Please find below resources to support community pharmacies in the East Sussex County Council area to build an HLP Level 1 Portfolio.

HLP-Level-1-checklist -This is a simple checklist for you to make sure your portfolio is complete. You can use the same piece of evidence for more than one items on the list.
HLP-Action-Plan-template This needs to be completed and kept in your portfolio.
Making Every Contact Count (MECC) is an approach to behaviour
change that uses the millions of day-to-day interactions that
organisations and individuals have with other people to support
them in making positive changes to their physical and mental
health and wellbeing.
It supports the opportunistic delivery of consistent and concise healthy
lifestyle information and enables individuals to engage in conversations
about their health at scale across organisations and populations.
www.makingeverycontactcount.co.uk provides resources
and information to support people and organisations implementing this
approach. Developed with multi-agency input at local, regional and
national level, it is a ‘one stop shop’ library of national and local resources
that can be used to support the development, implementation and
evaluation of MECC programmes across local communities.
Use the website to access:
• example frameworks
• case studies
• e-learning materials
• healthy lifestyle resources
• nationally agreed MECC resources developed in partnership through
a National MECC Advisory Group, including a consensus statement,
implementation guide, evaluation framework and training quality
• local and national contacts
• digital media products
