Supporting NHS staff every step of the way 

Over the past two years, health service workers have put in a remarkable effort to keep us all safe, all while facing an increased risk of infection and pressurised working conditions that have been exacerbated by staffing shortages. 

We have commissioned independent research to find out how our discounts can support key workers during the cost of living crisis and improve recruitment and retention in the NHS. Through our research, we discovered that Health Service Discounts members can save £2,262 annually across various categories, including fashion, travel, household bills and much more.

Here are some of our Members' Annual Savings:

What we researched and why?

We talked to 2,032 key workers across the UK, half had access to our discount scheme, and the other half didn’t. Through our research, we learnt how much of an impact our discounts have on real NHS workers facing real issues, such as the cost of living, recruitment, and staff morale.

Our Key Research Findings 

Our members annually save £2,262 a year using our Health Service Discounts

91% of members say the discounts help them afford a higher quality of life 

23% of members are more likely to be ‘engaged employees’ than non-members

  • The UK is currently experiencing a cost of living crisis, with inflation hitting a 40-year-high in May 2022 at 9.1%. The crisis has particularly hit our country’s essential frontline workers, and as a result, we discovered that 33% of healthcare workers described their financial situation as “making ends meet”, “relying on credit”, and “falling into debt”.

  • Our research found that Health Service Discounts members save an average of £188.50 a month across multiple categories. That’s £2,262 a year - the equivalent of giving the average nurse a 7% annual pay rise.

    • Our members are 23% more likely to be ‘engaged’ employees compared to non-members.  
    • 46% of members feel loyal towards their role/sector due to their discount scheme access.
      This figure increases to 54% amongst Prepaid Cashback Card members. 
    • Members are 37% more likely than non-members to recommend their workplace to others.


Our discounts offer a FREE and accessible way for key workers to save money and feel appreciated. 

Additionally, members are able to afford a higher quality of life that they wouldn’t be able to obtain if it weren’t for our discounts.  But don’t take it from us. Read what our members have to say:
