// Morrisons announces 10% discount on shopping for all NHS heroes during the Covid-19 pandemic
// The 10% discount comes into effect from Thursday
// It will last for at least 12 weeks
Morrisons has announced a 10 per cent discount on shopping for all NHS staff for 12 weeks to support the UK’s frontline health care workers through the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Big 4 grocer said the discount comes into effect from Thursday this week and will last until July 12, when it will be reviewed.
Morrisons said the gesture was a “thank you” the 1.5 million NHS workers around the country who are facing “unprecedented challenges” during the pandemic.

The discount for NHS staff is also the latest measure being introduced by Morrisons to support those battling coronavirus on the frontline.
The other initiatives include the NHS Shopping Hour to help NHS staff can get hold of the groceries they need the beginning of every day between 6am-7am, and 9am-9.30am on Sundays.
Morrisons also launched a click-and-collect food box service from hospital car parks to give NHS staff easy access to essential groceries after their shift has ended.
It will be available in 22 hospitals this week with more to come.
“This discount is our thank you to all those working in the National Health Service at this very difficult time,” Morrisons chief executive David Potts said.
“We are giving them our full support and gratitude as they continue to care for and support the nation during the Covid-19 pandemic.”
