During this time, Macmillan's priority is the health and well-being of people living with cancer, our staff and volunteers. We are pleased to be working in partnership with Boots, to support people living with cancer in the best way possible at this extraordinary time.
Boots Macmillan Information Pharmacist Service
Boots UK are currently focused on providing essential pharmacy and healthcare services in stores. Our Boots Macmillan Information Pharmacists are still in-store and able to provide advice and support to those who are still able to access stores, whether that is the person living with cancer or someone going on their behalf. We’re so proud of all our amazing Boots Macmillan Information Pharmacists who are working hard every day to provide people with their prescriptions, listen to worries and concerns about medication, and guide them to other sources of information and support.
Boots Macmillan Beauty Advisors
Due to COVID-19, Boots Macmillan Beauty Advisors won't be in store to offer help and advice, but you can still get help virtually. We've partnered with No7 to create make-up and skincare video tutorials. You can also book a virtual beauty consultation below.
Virtual Beauty Service
No7 has launched a Virtual Beauty Service, to help you feel more like you again. You can book a 15-20 minute telephone or video appointment with a Boots Macmillan Beauty Advisor, who can provide make-up and skincare advice to help you manage the side visible effects of cancer treatment.
Prescription Delivery Charges
For those who are shielding or self-isolating, Boots’ online prescription delivery service continues to provide free deliveries to your front door. We have also worked with Boots to waive the offline prescription delivery charge for people living with cancer during this challenging period. If you are unable to access the online delivery service and unable to collect your prescription in store, please consider alternative methods to arrange your prescription delivery (friends/ family/local volunteer service) or speak to your local Boots Store Team who will be able to arrange free delivery for you.
As part of their response and support during COVID-19 pandemic, Boots have teamed up with UK Says No More to launch Safe Spaces in their Pharmacy consultation rooms across the UK. By creating this Safe Space in Boots UK pharmacies, the hope is many will be able to safely access support while following Government guidelines. Learn more about the Safe Spaces scheme.
