Step 3. Portfolio of Evidence

Portfolio of Evidence

As part of becoming a Healthy Living Pharmacy, you must complete a Portfolio of Evidence which may be requested as part of contractual monitoring. It is therefore important to ensure information it contains is up to date and accurate.

Your portfolio may be compiled electronically or in hard copy (with a ring binder for example). Our HLP Portfolio Workbook is a practical way to collate the necessary information summarised below. The workbook and other suggested documents (highlighted below with a blue badge) are available in the HLP Toolkit.
