Boots planning in-store GP services2nd August 2006
Retail giant Boots looks set to add GP surgeries alongside its other range of healthcare services.
Around a dozen of its larger stores are expected to open surgeries as part of the Government’s drive to provide better access to healthcare. A number of supermarkets could also open surgeries as part of the move, which has drawn some criticism from doctors’ leaders.
Boots already provides diagnostic tests for sexually transmitted diseases for the NHS, and hosts an NHS walk-in centre in Birmingham but pulled out of providing dentistry and chiropody services in 2004.
