Discounts for NHS staff
As we recognise the efforts of the NHS workers fighting the coronavirus pandemic, the public has come together to thank our amazing health workers. The public is showing their appreciation with the weekly #ClapforCarers and by raising money for NHS Charities Together!
On top of public support, NHS workers have been inundated with kind offers of support from a wide range of companies – from taxi rides, supermarket offers, to free food. Here’s a list of offers for our NHS hero’s (other emergency and key workers may also be able to claim some of these discounts too). I will be updating this list with new offers and freebies weekly.
