Health service workers can get 10% off their shopping in store and now via home delivery too.
Bradford-based supermarket chain Morrisons is to extend the 10% discount that NHS heroes receive on their grocery shop until the end of September.
The discount was first introduced in April and aims to support the 1.5 million NHS staff through the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. It is a thank you from Morrisons.
NHS staff are continuing to put themselves at risk and face numerous challenges during the Coronavirus emergency.
Morrisons is therefore to extend the discount until September 30th when it will be reviewed.
For the first time, NHS workers will also be able to gain the discount if they are ordering a home delivery through Morrisons.com. They simply have to sign up for the Morrisons NHS Club to receive the discount.
David Potts, Morrisons Chief Executive said:
“We want to thank everybody in the National Health Service for playing their part in the ongoing battle against the coronavirus. We hope this measure combined with our dedicated hours for NHS staff will make life a little easier at this very challenging time for them.”
To benefit from the 10% discount staff need to present their NHS ID card in all Morrisons stores.
To make sure NHS staff can get hold of the groceries they need, Morrisons have also introduced an NHS hour at the beginning of every day from 6am-7am. On Sundays, the majority of stores open at 9am for hard working NHS workers to shop.
