Discounts For NHS Staff During Coronavirus

​As a nursing agency, many of our agency nurses are directly tied to the NHS and we'd like to highlight as many discounts for NHS staff and emergency workers as we possibly can in the hope it'll be shared amongst friends and colleagues. As we're sure you can appreciate some perks are at risk of stopping at short notice but we'll endeavour to keep the list as up to date and relevant as possible. If any of our agency nurses, or in-fact anyone, has any discounts for NHS staff in the UK they would like to share and promote, you can send us an email with details and a link to
