EDF has partnered up with UK pharmacy support network Avicenna to assist local communities through the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic.

EDF volunteers will in fact collect supplies and deliver them to patients that are in self-isolation or unable to access their local pharmacies.

EDF customers managing director Philippe Commaret said: “These are challenging times, and we’re committed to doing all we can to support our customers and the wider public.

“Through partnerships such as this with Avicenna, we’re pleased to be able to help households receive the essential medicines they need, and I’d like to thank all our volunteers who are taking part.”
