That's great to hear that you've found out about our discounts Irene. Yes, I'm sure there are plenty of retired NHS staff that don't realise they can use our discounts, we're certainly trying to get this message out to them though. If you could tell some of your friends or ex-colleagues about it that would be amazing. Thanks, Andy
I retired November 2011 and didn't realise I still qualified for these discounts, till it came up on my Facebook page, so I have now notified my son and daughter in law. I'm sure there are a lot of former employees not aware that they still qualify!
Thanks Andy for your reply. I will keep looking at other offers too.
Hi Sue, thanks for leaving a comment. Unfortunately, unless you have an ID card you won't be able to claim offers like the example that you used. However, there are many offers on the site that don't require an ID card to claim the deal. Yes, the Purple Parking offer requires you to enter the code at the checkout on our partners' website, so you don't need to show NHS ID. It will state if you need to do so. I hope this helps. Thanks, Andy
Hi I left the NHS in March last year. I have changed my profile to 'former member of staff'. How do I go about redeeming discount offers if I don't now have an ID card i.e. Using the printable voucher for Halfords where you have to present your ID? Also would I be able to use Purple Parking? There is a voucher code for this so is this all I need to activate the offer? Thanks
