Prescription help for vulnerable patients

How Boots are working with the Football Association of Ireland (FAI) to deliver medicines to vulnerable patients

Struggling to get the medicines you need during these uncertain times? Boots and the FAI may be able to help through a new initiative.

Over 30 FAI Community Development Officers will be volunteering their time, five days a week, to help Boots get prescription medicines to the people who need them.

Those medicines can be delivered to vulnerable patients and customers, all over the country, who may not be able to access their pharmacy for reasons such as self-isolation or shielding.

How do I avail of the service?

The service is really easy to use. Patients, or family members, simply need to phone their local Boots pharmacy for more information. Use our store locator for contact details.

Helping the community

Boots Ireland has been actively supporting local communities across the country with a focus on supplying patients and customers with the prescriptions, trusted advice and medicines that they need. 

“Pharmacy is at the frontline of providing healthcare in local communities and we want to do all we can to help our patients, customers and colleagues through this very difficult time,” said Caoimhe McAuley, Director of Pharmacy and Superintendent Pharmacist at Boots Ireland.

“We are proud to work with the FAI Community Development Officers who have so generously volunteered their time in supporting vulnerable people in their communities.

“We are also encouraged by the level of kindness out there, whether it’s through organisations like the FAI, through our local authorities and also through our suppliers, who continue to support initiatives we have underway to help our patients, customers and colleagues at this time.”
