It frankly surprises me that Boots are choosing to do this. Whatever benefits they believe they will get from making us all wear it, they surely stand to lose by putting so many locums off working for them.
Has anyone spoken to the AOP or the Inland Revenue about whether we can use a uniform if we are self-employed? (Or if Boots can demand it?) If not we have a good answer to give them
Is there someone we can contact to explain our concerns about this idea to at Boots? It might be a good idea if we have someone we can write (polite) letters to about our concerns.
