Many eateries and shops are offering freebies, discounts and special access to NHS staff during the covid-19 outbreak.
We’ve worked to put together this regularly updated guide to where any qualifying person can grab a free or discounted bite to eat, and grab their groceries without having to deal with the hustle and bustle of crowds of shoppers.
If you know of any that we have not mentioned, please tell us in the comments!
Tesco: One hour before Sunday opening time, with valid NHS ID.
Morrisons: 7am-8am, Monday-Saturday, with valid NHS ID.
M&S: First hour of trading every Tuesday and Thursday for NHS and Emergency Service workers, with valid ID.
Asda: 8am-9am, Monday-Wednesday-Friday, with valid NHS ID.
Iceland: Final hour of trading each day for NHS staff only, with valid NHS ID.
Sainsbury’s: 8am-9am, Monday-Wednesday-Friday, to all NHS staff and also Social Care workers, with valid ID.
(We will continue to add to/amend this list!)
Sadly, some of the eateries that have previously offered NHS discounts and freebies have closed even for takeaway meals for safety reasons – McDonald’s, Caffe Nero and Starbucks are examples. We will amend this list if any other eateries included close down fully.
This one is on us
