New Healthy Living Pharmacy reports in LG Inform and LG Inform Plus
Healthy Living Pharmacies is a framework for consistent delivery of a broad range of high quality services through community pharmacies to meet local need, improving the health and wellbeing of the local population and helping to reduce health inequalities. Two new reports in LG Inform and LG Inform Plus provide a brief outline of the coverage of Healthy Living Pharmacies, and pharmacies in the process of Healthy Living accreditation, in your area, alongside key measures relating to the health and wellbeing of the local population. They are designed to inform discussions about local health care provision.
The LG Inform report presents this information at local authority geography for your selected area. Through a series of maps, the LG Inform Plus report highlights the specific locations of Healthy Living Pharmacies within a selected local authority or CCG area, alongside other measures at ward level.
