Here is how to find your nearest information pharmacist:
- Visit the store locator on the Boots website.
- Add your postcode, town or store name and from the ‘Find additional store services’ drop down menu select ‘Boots Macmillan Information Pharmacist’. This is listed under ‘Pharmacy services’.
- Click the ‘Find’ button at the bottom of the page.
- Your nearest stores will be displayed on a map.
You don’t need an appointment to speak with an information pharmacist, you can turn up and talk with them at any time.
When you get to the store, just head for the pharmacy counter. If you are unsure where it is, ask a staff member who will be able to direct you.
Look out for a sign at the counter telling you if the BMIP is in that day. If you don’t see the sign, ask someone, or look out for a member of staff wearing a Macmillan badge.
If you want, you can ask to speak to the information pharmacist in private. They will either take you to a private area, or a consultation room where you can have a chat.
All discussions are confidential and there is no question too big or small.
If you don’t feel comfortable asking for the pharmacist we also have a number of leaflets available at the pharmacy counter that may help in answering some of your questions.
