Boots UK has launched in-store a Covid-19 testing service, offered to those without Covid-19 symptoms.
The service is already available in 10 stores located in London, Birmingham, Manchester, Edinburgh and Glasgow for customers travelling to UAE, with plans to roll out a wider service to more than 50 stores across the UK over the next few weeks.
Boots stated that depending on demand and feedback, the launch may extend to 200 stores over the coming months.
The service is available as a private pre-flight testing service for customers who require a test before travelling abroad, or for people who plan to visit their families.
Seb James, managing director of Boots UK and Ireland said: “Boots has supported the government’s Covid-19 testing programme from the very start and offering this new in-store service is the next step in our efforts to fight against the pandemic. We hope that by offering this testing option in local community stores, Boots can help ease pressure on the NHS and the government by providing additional access to testing and crucial reassurances for people across the UK.”
