Healthy Living Pharmacies
Your chance to make a difference
Murrays are pioneering Healthy Living Pharmacies across both Dudley and Shropshire which are two of the 20 areas across the country, chosen by the Department of Health to be pathfinder sites.
Each branch involved in HLP has shown a commitment to the promotion of healthy lifestyles by providing proactive advice, support and services. Healthy living champions at each branch have shown we really can make a difference and by engaging with people in discussing sustainable lifestyle options they have proven that delivering an innovative quality service helps improve the health and well being of their local communities.
The HLP concept will not just stop at Dudley and Shropshire for Murrays. We will be rolling this out to selected shops in the remaining three areas (Wolverhampton, Sandwell and Worcestershire), and in time, it will be a standard for all our pharmacies to attain. So what is a Healthy living pharmacy?
HLP’s with the support of the Local Area Team of the NHS provide a range of services (some of which may have already been provided) to support and encourage healthier lifestyles, evidence has shown that HLP’s are more effective than non-HLP’s in delivering smoking quits, alcohol interventions and respiratory medicine use reviews. Murrays have gone one step further offering services not specifically funded by the NHS, our aim is to promote the delivery of these services through providers other than primary care centers building an evidence base for the commissioning of public health services in the new NHS.
Our commitment to HLP can be seen in Dudleys’ figures who list thirteen HLP’s of which six are Murrays Branches and the very first Dudley Healthy Living Pharmacy was Murrays Stourbridge.
