If oil has been changed then turbo should be ok but fleet vehicles can have missed services & I have heard of company vehicles bering serviced at Halfords to cut costs so I would get this checked out asap.

What's wrong with Halfords? I would probably want to supply the oil or at least discuss it.
My citroen garage doesn't go by the book (ignore items on the service schedule, potentially wrong oil etc), and I'm not overly impressed with the quality of the work, in fact some of it was appalling, so I don't see that main dealer servicing guarantees much.
I've used Halfords in the past, and before that when they were Lex and then Nationwide and they were spot on everytime. My Dads just had a full service at his local and it was probably one or the most comprehensive I've seen and they seemed very honest. Incidentally there was a 1.6hdi in at the time with turbo failure and they were talking to the owner about injector seals, so pretty clued up. My citroen garage won't even discuss turbo issues on these cars with me!
I think it much depends on the people at the individual place. I've had my hands burnt, so I'm vary wary of where I take my cars.
What's wrong with Hellfrauds?? Aside from telling customers they need parts that are not required, completely
incompetent workmanship.....over priced....happy to lie.....until recently their website was recommending the wrong
oil for turbo-diesels despite the fact that they sell the correct stuff....then there's....Oh here's a link:
I wouldn't let them change a spark plug on a lawn mower!

To answer the question. Halfords might well have used the wrong oil & they may not have used correct oil drain procedure as set out by Citroen.
