Pharmacist Support’s Boots Partnership

Pharmacist Support announced their wellbeing partnership with Boots, following a successful pilot in 2017, to reach more of those in the profession facing difficult times.

Pharmacist Support, the profession’s independent charity, announced an expansion of its partnership work with Boots UK. In a survey in 2016 of Boots Pharmacists Association (BPA) members highlighted a need for a service that aided them to help themselves, build resilience, and enable them to find solutions to problems and deal with emotional distress.

Boots funded the charity to carry out a coaching pilot. This offered individuals access to six 1:1 hour long sessions with a trained coach, focused on work-related and personal issues, including dealing and negotiating with colleagues, building resilience, assertiveness and confidence as well as managing stress and anxiety. The pilot was well received, with clients reporting that the coaching had “improved all areas of my life”.

Pharmacist Support Chief Executive, Danielle Hunt, said: “We are absolutely delighted that Boots is supporting the charity to explore ways to expand our coaching work, allowing us to support more pharmacists across Great Britain. As the profession’s independent charity, we encounter daily the struggles those in the profession are facing which means we are well placed to develop solutions that empower an individual to make choices that lead to positive change and personal growth.”
