The concept of a “healthy living pharmacy” was highlighted as a case study in the public health White Paper ‘Equity and Excellence: Liberating the NHS’.

The Department welcomes the initiative taken by the main pharmacy representative organisations to promote and support the spread of healthy living pharmacies. The Department is represented on the steering group for this project and looks forward to the evaluation of the pathfinder sites, to see if the results obtained in Portsmouth can be replicated in other parts of the country.
