by | Mar 30, 2020

Our patron, Boots is working with the Government to support the NHS in this time of need.

Boots UK, have a strong and trusted heritage in supporting the healthcare of the nation, and they’ve always stepped up to support the community and the NHS.

They are working to support the Government and NHS to set up and resource new drive-through testing stations for COVID-19. Testing is specifically for NHS staff by invitation only, and trials have already been taking place on their site in Nottingham this week.

Seb James, Managing Director, Boots UK and ROI, said: “I am extremely proud that Boots is supporting COVID-19 testing for NHS workers. Boots has been at the heart of UK healthcare for 171 years and has always come forward to support the community in times of need. We will work with the NHS to recruit trained professionals – both Boots colleagues and from the wider community. I am sure there will be many trained healthcare clinicians and students, who will step forward to support our dedicated NHS colleagues. Locations are being defined but will be spread across the UK; they will not however be in Boots stores, allowing our colleagues to focus on supporting our customers and patients.”
