Boots to put GPs in their stores
The chemist's chain Boots is planning to put NHS GP surgeries and hospital consultants in its stores in a radical attempt to bring the health service to the high street.

Under the deal which the health and beauty retailer has been discussing with primary care trusts Boots will rent out space on commercial terms.

The chemist's chain has been liaising with Paul Corrigan, Tony Blair's senior policy adviser on health, about the plans. On Wednesday Mr Blair is expected to underline his support for the initiative in a speech on healthcare he is due to deliver in Nottingham - home to the Boots head office. Richard Baker, Boots' chief executive, is hosting the event. The prime minister will also hold a private meeting with senior executives.

Mr Blair's speech is one of a series entitled "Our Nation's Future", which are designed to kick off debate on a range of issues. On Wednesday he is expected to encourage people to take more responsibility for their health, and emphasise the role of the commercial sector in helping to provide "convenient healthcare".
