Paula has been trying to buy a Boots Tens unit today but nobody can tell her whether or not the pads are latex free.   When are people going to wake up to this problem???

That's disgraceful.  Even on Boot'sale website it doesn't sat.  Have a look here  
http://www.med-fit.co.uk/medfit-extra-long-lasting-self-adhesive-electrodes-with -multi-stick-gel.html  
they clearly mark their pads as latex free.

Many thanks Kim.   Boots just lost a sale as I've decided to by the wireless Tens machine made by that company.

Bought this Tens machine.

I spoke to a rep this morning who informed me  that all their pads are latex free.   I told him that I wished to buy one and he told me to buy it over the internet rather than on the phone as, on the interned, you could reclaim the VAT and it simply wouldn't be charged.   He also said that they have special hypo-allergenic pads and he would replace the pads in our kit with those at no extra charge.
 
Customer service at its best.
