As NHS staff continue to face unprecedented pressure in the midst of the coronavirus epidemic, a huge number of brands are showing solidarity and support to those on the front line through discounts and freebies.
As well as supermarkets offering special shopping hours, huge numbers of fast-food chains, travel brands and homeware companies have also made an effort to offer a little something extra.
If you’re an NHS worker or know someone who is, we’ve rounded up the current discounts available right now to help you through.
Whether it’s fast-food or fresh supermarket produce, here’s a breakdown of where NHS workers can get a discount or freebies.
