NHS England and NHS Health Education England funded events for Health Champions

 Health Champion Knowledge into Action workshop

 An opportunity to attend a fully funded one-day development workshop.

Following a successful series of Health Champion revision and assessment workshops, NHS England Wessex team and Health Education England (HEE) Wessex are committing additional support for community pharmacies to build on their Healthy Living Pharmacies (HLP) accreditation. The NHS recognises the difference HLPs can make to the health and wellbeing of the communities they serve and are funding these Knowledge into Action workshops for Health Champions.

What is involved?

Through the delivery of two workshops, we will develop Health Champions by:

  • Inspiring and enabling them to put their knowledge into action
  • Having the skills and confidence to engage proactively with people about their health and wellbeing in the pharmacy and in the community
  • Introducing key aspects of MECC (Making Every Contact Count) including healthy conversation skills, use of open discovery questions, beliefs and SMARTER goal setting
  • Understanding why and how to maintain the Health Promotion Zone and run effective health promotion campaigns.

 Who should attend?

This development is for qualified Health Champions who are looking to further develop their confidence, knowledge, skills and role to make every contact count.

  • Registration for both workshops at 9:00am, start at 9:30am and finish by 4:30pm
