The HLP criteria state that a pharmacy requires a clear leader within the team who is responsible for creating an ethos of proactive health and wellbeing within the pharmacy. The leader encourages each member of the team to best use their skills and, creates an environment that supports and mentors team members to deliver this vision. This course supports anybody who wants to improve their leadership skills.

Course Overview

This course helps you as the leader to understand the role that you and the rest of the pharmacy team can play in promoting health and wellbeing to all your patients and customers. It will also cover the background of HLPs and why they are so important to the NHS Long term plan, as well as looking at specific areas of the Royal Pharmaceutical Societies Leadership Development Framework and the NHS Leadership Academy’s Healthcare Framework  with specific examples of how they apply to an HLP as well as practical hints and tips on how you can use them in practice.
