Read about our work with the Royal Pharmaceutical Society.
Our partnership activities with Boots began in 2016 when the company commissioned the development of some bespoke wellbeing videos and resources for their pharmacy teams. This continued into 2017 when again Boots funded a coaching pilot scheme for its Boots Pharmacy Association (BPA) members. This was followed up by an additional donation in 2019 for the charity to continue to develop its wellbeing offering.
The charity is delighted to partner once again in 2022 and to focus this wellbeing activity on supporting trainees to get mentally prepared for the assessment and their transition to registered pharmacist through our Trainee ACTNow campaign and also to build on the support and wellbeing resources available internally to Boots employees.
"Pharmacists play a vital role in supporting the health of their patients and communities. It's hugely important to us at Boots we in turn can support the wellbeing not only of our own team members but also those working in the wider profession, especially those at the start of their career. That is why we have partnered with Pharmacist Support to get involved in its Trainee ACTNow campaign and I encourage all Trainee Pharmacists to explore the resources now available."Marc Donovan - Chief Pharmacist, Boots UK
