And the police, and the navy and the RAF, and why not school cleaners, catering staff and cleaners who work for agency’s for the NHS ( with no fixed hours contracts and working for parasitic agents ))how about home help? Street cleaners? Bar staff? Call centre workers? Offering such discounts to well paid people with secure jobs and good pensions ... is mice but feels like a publicity stunt. We all work hard
NHS staff should always get free refreshments (while in uniform at least!)

EDIT - I mean anywhere from big chains like this.

I agree...as long as they're in uniform they should get priority. They never know when they would get a break!

Completely agree. Doctors are treated like martyrs despite very high salaries and incredible pensions (funded by the public). Not saying they don't work hard of course.

As you say it's a nice gesture but not completely unselfish because if it brings more customers into the store then they might also buy food. Loads of businesses use loss-leaders all the time, it's not really a publicity stunt.

Personally I agree with the peeps above who said all emergency workers (not all NHS staff - no offence to NHS staff) in uniform should be allowed to the front, but the thing is I don't think many would ask if they could go to the front (we're British - we queue) and there would always be someone in the queue who disagreed with an emergency worker going to the front, making a comment or tutting (we're British - we hate 'queue jumpers'.)
I hope Tim Horton has got a big kettle and lots of mugs, very kind of him.

But the stresses and strains places on our NHS and the low level of manning means these people are working hard. Not only this they are doing it with a smile and treating you when you reach the lowest parts of your life. When your family are taken into hospital these people move heaven and earth to help fix you. They see several patients and barely keep afloat them self’s. They full deserve a nice little treat. Let’s face it it’s not costing the earth but what a lovely gesture for people who are constantly looking after others.

Sorry why should they. I appreciate they do a great job but doesn’t mean they should get stuff for free. I’d say a discount would suffice. But not sure why a chain no matter how big should give away maybe 300,000 coffees a day because you think it’s a good idea.

Many people deserve a treat I couldn’t agree more. However it’s one company just trying to help. They will have to draw the line somewhere otherwise their profits would drop significantly.
Fantastic idea. We should all be doing more to look after our emergency workers.
I really like Tim Horton’s, will visit several times no doubt while I’m in NY.

Disagree on the "as long as they're in uniform" my sister works for the NHS and doesn't wear a uniform. It's only certain roles that do.
Didn't even realise we had Tim Hortons over here. I always hear about it on a Canadian podcast I listen to.
I don't agree that NHS workers should get free stuff. Maybe front line workers on duty in uniform. I work with NHS staff and some of them hate patients and members of the public; so absolutely no to queue jumping.

Let us know when you do.
Almost everyone falls over themselves to say how wonderful NHS staff are, but the reality is there are far to many who don't deserve to be able to buy coffee let alone get it for free.

I get the point you’re making, but I feel this is a nice gesture to people who, although well paid, most aren’t paid as well as their counterparts in other countries.

The key here is how much the NHS staff are being squeezed and the responsibility they have.

I work hard, but if I lose my concentration, I won’t kill someone.

a free cup of tea isn’t much when you consider these factors.
ICE CAP. WANT
Is this branch specific to Manchester Oxford Road, rather than the London Oxford Street store?

Store-specific promotion for NHS staff makes sense as the store is right in the middle of not just one hospital, but a massive campus with 4+ big hospitals, school of medicine, and more. The streets are crawling with people in medical scrubs.

Doesn't seem any more unfair to police officers etc than the farm shop cafe offering discounts to workers at the massive factory next door.
Public service jobs are secure because they can't find enough people who want to do it. Just saying. I'd love to know what the bar staff equivalent of a nurse is.

The door is wide open, everybody getting upset over the abject ostentatiousness of a free chain store hot drink, such luxury is potentially available to you.

Or not at all, wanna help don't help rich doctors, yeah not all NHS staff are rich,
Help Homelessness or whatever

It's all marketing, you could say "helping" is a good thing but if you're / they're only doing it for profit than its not a good thing at all,

Nonsense
My sister makes enough in her job within the NHS that she can buy her own damn coffee. I love the NHS but these publicity stunts annoy me a little. I deserve a free coffee too.

Who hurt you?



It's not about me. I know to many people who have received poor to downright nasty treatment from some NHS staff. To often the otherwise good staff sit back and do nothing to stop bad care and sometimes even help to cover it up. I have been in hospital and witnessed staff ignore elderly patients calling out in pain. I know of someone knowingly left for hours in their own faeces and I have heard staff lie about things they said happened or were said. I doubt it only happened when I was there. The most disturbing thing is that those people without a support network of friends or family to push the NHS staff to do their jobs properly are the ones most likely to get treated badly.
I am aware that staff in the NHS are like any profession, there are good and bad staff and see no reason why they should get special treatment.

Educate yourself. There has a crisis situation where senior doctors are being heavily financially penalised for doing additional work (that they are being asked to do, to see more patients in their spare time). This is all down to the new tapering system the government introduced.

Google it.
You have made three posts and in each one you have said the opposite of what you meant or made anyone reading them guess your actual meaning. I am not the one that needs to educate myself.
