Boots has announced plans to donate more than 500,000 products to local NHS Trusts, hospitals, care homes and community groups.
The donations include 100,000 toiletries, 5000 recuperation packs and other hygiene essentials.
The patient recuperation packs are for people who have recently come off ventilators at NHS Nightingale hospitals across the UK.
The packs will include hygiene essentials, such as toothbrushes, toothpastes, wipes and deodorants, as well as No7 face creams, Botanics face wipes and Soap & Glory hand creams.
NHS hospital staff working on the front-line are also set to be given hygiene essentials.
The announcement comes after a number of other Boots initiatives that have been rolled-out to support front-line workers and help protect the nation amid the outbreak of coronavirus. At the end of March, Boots opened drive-through Covid-19 testing sites for NHS workers in the UK. More recently, this month, its pharmacy division joined the NHS 111 triage service. This month, Boots has also hired 500 new drivers to deliver medicine to vulnerable patients free of charge.
In a statement, Boots UK managing director Seb James, said: “We want to offer further help at this time of national need and support the efforts of our front-line workers and communities up and down the country.
“It is our hope that providing essential toiletries to those that need them the most will help them feel just a little bit better.”
