Event description

Description

This is the second meeting designed by North of Tyne LPC to provide ongoing support to Health Champions working in community pharmacies. Please note the slightly later start time, as Broadacre House staff need time to reset the room for us following a morning meeting.

As many pharmacies are currently working towards their HLP status as part of the Quality Payment scheme, some staff may not yet have qualified as Health Champions. This meeting is open to those staff who will be or are currently training to be Health Champions. The only restriction, to keep the meeting managable, is that each pharmacy should send no more than ONE representative to the meeting. Those attending will be expected to cascade the information to other pharmacy staff.

The main focus of this meeting is to provide training for C-card repeat supplies. All pharmacies providing Plan B are now required to provide C-card as part of their contract. This session will alow staff from most pharmacies to train to provide the C-card service with immediate effect. Pharmacies will then be contacted by Mark Ellerby-Hedley, the C-card co-ordinator, to arrange training for the rest of the team.

Date for your diary - the next Health Champion meeting will take place on Wednesday 21st February and will focus on alcohol brief advice and interventions and we will be supplying Audit C scratchcards and marketing materials for an alcohol focussed campaign.
