EDF launches Covid-19 volunteering for independent pharmacies through partnership with Avicenna

EDF is continuing its efforts to support local communities during the Covid-19 pandemic; partnering with the UK’s largest pharmacy support network, Avicenna, to deliver essential prescription medicines to those in need.

Avicenna provides support to over 1,000 independent pharmacies across the UK.  Pharmacists, at the heart of local communities, have been working incredibly hard to ensure their patients do not go without vital supplies during this challenging time. The partnership will see a team of EDF engineer volunteers collect vital supplies and deliver to patients in self-isolation, or who are unable to get to their local pharmacy, across the South East.

This is the latest step EDF has undertaken to support the most vulnerable in society – including partnering with Boots Pharmacy Delivery and Collection (PDC) scheme to deliver essential supplies.

EDF employees across the country have volunteered to support local community initiatives, as well as working to help maintain energy supply for organisations offering crucial services – from NHS hospitals to scientific research labs.
