    As a long-standing supporter of the Ban the Box campaign, we are proud to be celebrating the opening of one million job roles in UK businesses to people with convictions. Launched in 2013 by Business in the Community, the Ban the Box campaign asks employers to remove the criminal offenses tick box from the first stage of applications; a ticked box often means an automatic rejection, regardless of the offence or the job.

    Victims of domestic abuse will now be able to access urgent support from thousands of pharmacies across the UK through a new codeword scheme, launched by the Government this week. The Ask for ANI scheme allows those at risk or suffering from abuse to discreetly signal that they need help. A trained member of the pharmacy team will then offer a private space where they can understand if the victim needs to speak to the police or would like help to access support services such as domestic abuse helplines. All 2,300 Boots pharmacies will be supporting this initiative, offering additional training for their pharmacy teams. Boots UK Chief Pharmacist, Marc Donovan said: “In addition to the designated Safe Spaces in our pharmacies, we hope with the new codeword scheme we can continue to help people access the support they need quickly, safely and discreetly. This is something our pharmacy teams feel very passionately about, and we are proud of their continued dedication supporting those in need at a time of such extraordinary challenge.”

    Boots stores will remain open throughout the lockdown so that you can access everything that you need. Our stores have been voted the safest on the high street, and we continue to lead the way with safe shopping and hygiene.

The team has worked very hard to make sure that there is more choice than ever before available for fast delivery - either to your home, or to pick up safely from your nearest store.
