This isn't a deal it's news that's been on the TV


I'd class this information as potentially life saving because it stops NHS members going into work tired, meaning that they're able to do their job at 100% as they have access to everything they need.

If it really bothers you, just let the admins know, and they'll decide what's appropriate for their site. And if you disagree with their decision, nobody is forcing you to be here, are they...?
I think these stores are doing a great job under circumstances. People need to stop griping its an extreme circumstance and evrybody is being stretched. The staff are doing a great job refilling empty shelves when they can. They must be working far harder than normal and dealing with more irate customers. Some with corona virus too which is a whole other problem they have to deal with. NHS staff finishing work shifts to find empty shelves in stores is very cruel so this is a great idea to makesure they are eating well when we need them most. They are the army right now on frontlines.

Mate you sound like a jerk. If this helps spread the message to NHS people, that’s a good thing. I don’t think pedantry about stuff like this is what anyone needs right now - not even you.

The first supermarket to do it the right way, making the hour before the store opens for everyone else. Might take a while for those stores like our local that used to open at 7am to make its customers aware properly those.

Imagining hoards outside moaning why they can’t go inside at 7am like before.

7 to 8 am in the NHS world is handover hour for all employees on 12 hour shifts.

True, but most people won't work on at least one of those days, so, at least it gives them time on their day(s) off to stock up before people panic buy shops into oblivion... =l
So, it gives people a chance to go in there and buy a loaf of bread for sandwiches, sandwich filler etc... to make for their/their kids' lunch that day/week.

Thanx!
Pointless giving early access if the shelves are empty. Went yesterday at my local Morrisons and there was no fruit or vegetables and other essential food just after 7 am.

I think the shops need time to adjust to the recent shift in buying habits lately, I'm hoping people will stop but I think/hope shops will adjust their opening hours/shelving time according the demand.

Let's hope so as it's no point at the moment to go to big supermarkets as there are no stocks and lots of people. Prefer to go to local corner shops who at least have some of the items
No elderly hour?

Loads of other shops are doing that, if I recall, Sainsbury’s and Iceland? This is the first and currently only one offering an NHS hour.

Unfed nhs staff means older adults may not get the care they need, or anyone else, think actually a good idea to do this, however given that most NHS staff have to be at work at 730am for shift handover it might be better to have 630am for nhs front line staff
7:30-8am at Sainsburys every day, just saw their email.

For the elderly, Sainsburys is 8-9am on Mon, Wed and Fri. Waitrose (from my reading) is the first hour every day.

Theoretically great ideas by supermarkets, policing is a whole new challenge. I read Southampton Asda was overrun with non key workers during the hour allotted to those in most need, pushing elderly shoppers aside to lunge at food and taking toilet paper from trolleys, disgraceful!

Anything that helps right now is welcome so well done Morrison's.

I fear in the weeks & months to come, we're going to have to MASSIVELY step-up support of our NHS staff. They're going to be working flat out with little chance to recover between shifts. Getting time to eat or even go to the toilet will be hard to come by.

What I fear most is when things get truly crazy (and they will) doctors are going to be forced to make minute by minute decisions on who lives & who dies because there's not enough staff or equipment to treat everyone.

Please, if you're a relative of someone that dies of CV, don't scream & shout at the staff! If you really must vent, then direct your ire at the people who have deliberately & willfully let our NHS wither on the vine for the last ten years.
Just to give balance to all the stories and pictures of empty supermarket shelves. I went into Sainsbury's in Leamington Spa yesterday mid morning and although the usual stuff like pasta / toilet rolls were out of stock there was pretty much everything else available. I just got my usual amount and resisted buying more than normal.
Glad to see that Sainsburys is giving different priority access times to NHS and OAPs as previously the times were the same which was not a good mix.
Remember all, keep calm and shop normally!

Most night staff dont finish shift until 8am though...
I would suggest that people email Sainsbury's about the timing for NHS workers may need tweaking. They are listening. To be fair all supermarkets are learning on the hoof in these unprecedented times.
NHS Doctors, nurses, and support care staff are the very frontline people facing the virus head on, they are the ones going head to head with people that could or have the virus - knowingly doing it when everyone else is being told to distance themselves.
They then go home to their families and put them at risk
So glad this site highlights these arrangements and glad this happening.
Everything helps

They still need to try and fit it in with their usual store hours. Next time use your brain
Sorry we cant win them all. You dont need to work the day you shop. You only have to show Id. The situation is evolving all the time. Most of the grocery items will be stocked. If it's not on the shelf we simply dont have it. Or ask someone if it has been delivered yet. If they can help anyone out they will. Extra staff from marie curie and click Sargent being taken on to help the elderly and vunerable so they dont need to make a journey to store.. We dont have elderly yet. This could change.We are simply trying our best.

We also need to hear more experiences like this.

I went two days ago, found almost everything (didn't need toilet roll or pasta). People should stop forwarding stories of empty stores because while it may have been empty at the time the story was written, staff are trying their best to refill multiple times a day. It is the hoarders who need to be named & shamed publicly.

Yes, similar story here in the East Midlands and my parents report the same in the South East. No pasta or toilet roll, but everything else is available somewhere - smaller shops, M&S and Waitrose all have decent stock. The local market yesterday had loads of fresh vegetables, and thousands of eggs too. There are clearly no actual shortages of food, although supply lines are messed up. I think the situation is changing, and people are in danger of prolonging the panics by fixating on last week's problems, and the small antisocial minority that actually did empty shelves into their trolleys.
My lad's a doctor. He's tried to do things 'properly'; self-isolating, not panic shopping & ordering only what his little family needs on-line.

Well this morning his big Tesco online shop arrived with far too many items marked 'not available' & missing. He's now having to go out to do a conventional shop which he doesn't want to do because working on the frontline, he considers himself a risk to others.

I advised him when he goes shopping to wear his NHS badge. If you see him (a) maybe keep your distance & (b) please let him have that last packet of bog-roll because he really does need it!

Yeah. It's the PiersMorganisation of society where some people think it's okay to behave like a complete, bumhole in public.

Don't worry. These folks are very shortly going to get a profound lesson in reality & the need to be both respectful & grateful to people that might be all that's between you & Oblivion.

Are NHS staff the only ones who poop then? We ALL need it, the fault lies FULLY at the feet of greedy, selfish people hoarding and incompetent retailers (inc Morrisons) who allowed these morons to buy so much in the first place. There’s no point implementing a 1 per customer rule when there’s nothing left!!!

As for these NHS hours, I sort of agree with it, BUT it’s annoying when I see a Facebook post from a friend who works in NHS finance bragging how they’ve got what they need, plus a free bunch of unsaleable flowers.... what makes an NHS Accountant who works 9-5 more heroic than say a Council Accountant? This needs to be restricted to medical practitioners in my view, the NHS is full of managers who simply manage other managers, pen pushers if you like, THEY are not heroes... but then again, neither are people who are doing their job, appreciated, of course, massively, but heroes? Really?

That silly NHS woman who started this off with her self righteous “I’m better than you” attitude was an embarrassment. Does she think she’s the only one who is finding empty shelves and going without? Someone said to me, yeah, but she’d just done a 48hr shift (facepalm)? Still, at least their workload will drop when we’re all dead from starvation

What did you expect, anyone going to the store and queuing before it’s opened is the sort of selfish ahole who is causing this problem in the first place. As such, they're unlikely to be the type to form a line of clapping adoring fans when they’ve been in and nicked all the best stuff?

As I said above, this WILL be abused, admin working 9-5 DO NOT need to use this, but they will, thats bound to get people’s backs up I’m afraid

That so called 'silly NHS woman' was a front line worker who'd just done a 48 hour shift. She was quite rightly stressed and tired. And yes in my book she is better than you or I.

Let’s not get over dramatic here, flu kills about 15000 in the UK annually anyway, the statistics show that 99% of deaths in Italy had pre existing conditions. It’s like the report of the youngest man to die of Coronavirus here, he had MND and was given 2yrs to live back in 2018, flu would have killed the poor guy, but that’s not going to give a good headline.

It’s literally just said on the news that for 4 in 5 people the effects will be mild, only those with existing conditions need worry, and the elderly....exactly the same as flu...
