Boots welcomed HRH The Duchess of Cornwall to Boots on Piccadilly Circus in London this week. While in store, Her Royal Highness met Boots Chief Pharmacist Marc Donovan, to discuss the Boots Safe Spaces initiative, and its support of the charity Hestia and its UK SAYS NO MORE campaign.

The scheme, which was launched during lockdown period in response to the desperate situation facing many domestic abuse victims who were isolating with perpetrators, allows victims to use Boots Pharmacy Consultation rooms to contact specialist domestic abuse services for support and advice.
