I am new to this forum and I work for the NHS.
I was wondering, where can you get discounts generally by just presenting your ID card? I am aware that you can get up to 20% off at Nandos just by showing your ID and a few gyms.
Look forward to hearing from all

THE BLUE LIGHT CARD
Another way to get discounts if you’re an NHS employee is to sign up to the Blue Light Card scheme (Credit @cornishscouse ). This scheme offers 100s of discounts across a whole range of shops, products and services.
Some of the retailers currently offering discounts to Blue Light members include:
- Free to sign up online
- You will need your employers details to sign up
- Pay £4.99 and receive a physical card that enables you to get discounts on the high street
- The card is valid for 5 years
There are MANY other discounts available too!

Finally, a good idea is to keep your NHS ID card handy because it’s always worth asking if a shop or service has an NHS discount, the worst that can happen is that they say no! Also, local independent businesses near NHS hospitals can offer discounts so don’t forget to ask them too.
