Event description

Description

This is the second of the 2018/19 enhanced training events for Health Champions working in level 2 Healthy Living Pharmacies in East Sussex.

The day is an opportunity for Health Champions to meet with pharmacy colleagues, public health specialists and service providers to exchange ideas, share knowledge and best practice, and to feedback thoughts and opinions to help shape the East Sussex Healthy Living Pharmacy level 2 programme going forward. Topics for the day will include stop smoking and social prescribing in relation to mental health and well-being, plus an introduction to local initiatives such as the Warm Homes campaign and the Minor Eyes Condition service.

Attendance for Health Champions is mandatory under the HLP level 2 service specifications, so a £100 back fill payment will be available to those branches whose champions attend. Lunch is also provided.

FAQs

Who's eligible to attend the training?

This training session is currently open to Health Champions working in accredited Healthy Living level 2 community pharmacies based in the East Sussex local authority area.

We don’t currently have a Health Champion. Can we send another member of staff?

Yes you can. These sessions are all about good communication, so it’s really important for your branch that one of your counter team attends. By building good interpersonal relationships, we can better support each other in delivering the programme.

Do I have to bring anything with me?

You don't have to bring anything specific, but it may be a good idea to bring a pad and pen to take notes. We’ll provide lunch, and teas and coffees at break times. You don’t have to bring your printed ticket as you’ll be asked to register and sign in when you arrive. The register will be used to authorise your branches £100 backfill payment, so it’s important that you sign in.

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Eastbourne is served by frequent rail and bus services from across the county, and there is good on street parking and council run car parks close to the venue. Please see National Rail for rail times and tickets, Stagecoach for bus details and East Sussex County Council and Eastbourne Borough Council websites for parking details.
