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 Advisor Service
In response to recent government guidance related to Coronavirus (COVID-19), our Boots Macmillan Beauty Advisors are unable to offer their usual face to face services in store. We are working with No7 to create online content so that people living with cancer can still access some of this support through ‘how to’ make-up tutorials and skincare tips helping them to manage the visible side effects of treatment. This will be made available as soon as possible.
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.
