Boots Supports the Government to Open COVID-19 Testing Facilities for NHS Workers
27th March 2020, Nottingham, UK: Further to the Government’s announcement today, Boots UK is supporting COVID-19 testing for NHS workers.
Please see below comment from Seb James, Managing Director, Boots UK and ROI:
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. Seb James, Managing Director, Boots UK and ROI
Boots have been carrying out testing this week for NHS workers at their site in Beeston, Nottingham.
