Boots welcomes job applications from LloydsPharmacy staff
Pharmacy chains, including Boots, have stepped in to offer roles to pharmacy staff affected by the news that Lloydspharmacy is to withdraw from its Sainsbury’s in-store operations.
Boots has welcomed job applications from LloydsPharmacy staff impacted by the news of closure of all its branches (237) located in Sainsbury’s before the end of 2023.
The company is recruiting for more than 1,500 pharmacy roles nationwide. Vacancies span pharmacy roles at all levels – from Pharmacy Advisors (Dispensers) and Trainee Pharmacists to experienced Pharmacists looking to develop their careers.
Sebastian James, Managing Director of Boots UK & ROI, said: “Pharmacies deliver vital healthcare in the heart of communities. News of the closure of LloydsPharmacy branches within Sainsbury’s stores will no doubt have an impact on many talented pharmacists as well as their patients.
“We have many roles available at Boots and welcome applications from LloydsPharmacy employees affected by the closures. Patients who are worried about their future pharmacy provision can check our store locator online to find out where their nearest Boots store is – our pharmacy team members are ready to help.”
There are over 2,200 Boots stores across the UK and 85% of the population live within 10 minutes of a Boots store.
