Providing NHS discounts for big brands is our way of helping hard-working NHS staff save money.

It’s a small thank you for the amazing job that you do looking after the health of the nation.

We often get asked by staff in a variety of roles if they’re entitled to our NHS discounts. So, we thought it would help if we gave you an overview of who can use our offers.

NHS Staff

NHS Staff

It doesn’t matter what your role is; everyone who works in the NHS is entitled to our discounts. Porters, admin staff, nurses, surgeons, pharmacy staff, dentists and every role in between. Full-time, part-time, contractual, bank staff – if you’re working in the NHS you’re entitled to our discounts.

Please select the option ‘NHS Staff’ on the registration form and choose your organisation.

NHS Students & Trainees

NHS students and trainees are the new-blood of the NHS, so of course they are entitled to our NHS discounts. It doesn’t matter which field you’re studying; our discounts are there to help you save some money while you are working hard to pass your exams.

If you have a valid NHS ID badge, please select the option ‘NHS Staff’ on the registration form. If not, please select ‘Other’.

Retired NHS Staff

This is a question that we get asked more than others, as many retired NHS staff don’t realise that they are eligible to our NHS discounts. Retired staff have dedicated their life’s work to taking care of others and saving lives, so it is only right that our NHS discounts can help them save money too. Unfortunately, there may be a few deals that retired NHS staff can’t use, such as the Cashback Card, because this requires an active NHS email address to validate the account.

Please select the option ‘Retired or Former NHS Staff’ on the registration form.

Foundation Trust Members

Foundation Trust Members play a pivotal role in their communities and provide fantastic support to the NHS. There are a few offers that are unavailable to Foundation Trust Members, unless they have a valid NHS email address or ID badge.

Please select ‘Foundation Trust Member’ on the registration form.

Family of NHS Staff

One of the perks of being related to a superhero! Family and friends can claim some of our discounts too.

Please select ‘Family or Friend’ on the registration form.

    just signed up for this but none of the links seem to work, what am I doing wrong?


  • D Canada

    I am a bit confused. Are pharmacist, holding an NHS smartcard and working for NHS contractors such as community pharmacies entitled to have these discounts? Kind regards


  • Sue

    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

      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

    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!

      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
