Healthcare Retail Standard Guide

The Healthcare Retail Standard (HRS) is a mandatory requirement for all stores and trolley services in NHS healthcare settings in Scotland. The HRS should be implemented and assessed by 31st March 2017, however, it should be viewed as an opportunity for retailers to encourage the nation to eat more healthily. 

It makes sense that an institution which provides healthcare, should also provide healthier choices for people to consume, whether the customer is an NHS employee, patient or visitor.

The Healthcare Retail Standard document provides the guidance for retailers to achieve that role and can be accessed here.
