Healthy living at your local pharmacy

Healthy living at your local pharmacy

From November 2016 Solihull will have 10 local pharmacies that are to become new “Healthy Living Pharmacies (HLP), each offering a range of services, advice, help and information to support you to lead a healthy lifestyle.

Each pharmacy will have at least two accredited “Health Champions” who will be trained to give you health and wellbeing advice as well as information about services available in the local community that will be able to support you to improve your health and wellbeing in areas such as:

  • weight management
  • alcohol consumption
  • quitting smoking

Prevention not treatment

Concentrating on the prevention rather than the treatment is the aim so you can benefit from living well for longer reducing your need to visit your GP or local hospital.

Accredited pharmacies will be awarded with the HLP quality mark so you can easily identify them as your local Healthy Living Pharmacy.

Get healthy with your local HLP pharmacy

As well as being easy to access, whether you visit your local HLP pharmacy for basic remedies or have a long term health condition you will receive a professional service offering advice, support and help so that you can enjoy a brighter, healthier and happier future.

Many of the HLP pharmacies will be open when your doctor surgery is closed and there is no need for an appointment.

The ten pharmacies in Solihull currently working towards their HLP status and expecting to receive their accreditations by November this year are:

  • Tesco Pharmacy, Shirley
  • Dudley Taylor, Cheswick Green
  • Craig Croft, Chelmsley Wood
  • Dalton Pharmacy, Dickens Heath
  • MR Pharmacy, Monkspath
  • Browns Pharmacy, Warwick Road
  • Browns Pharmacy, Kingshurst
  • Boots Pharmacy, Hatchford Brook
  • St Marys Pharmacy, Hampton in Arden
  • Lloyds Pharmacy, Castle Bromwich
