A Morrisons spokesperson said “We are delighted to have offered our hardworking NHS customers a 10% discount through to the end of 2021. As an extra thank you and to help you save money on your New Year shopping, we have extended the discount and it will now end on January 16, 2022.

“From January 17, the discount will be replaced with exclusive offers and rewards, just for NHS Club Members. You’ll find these in the ‘My Offers’ section of the My Morrisons app. And don’t forget, NHS Club Members can enjoy free delivery online too – just sign in or register at Morrisons.com and free delivery will be applied to your basket.”

Asda has previously announced that their NHS discount in stores will end on January 31.

In a statement in December 2021, Derek Lawlor, chief merchandising officer at Asda, said: “This Christmas has been particularly tough for our emergency services, so we wanted to say a heartfelt thank you for everything they continue to do by extending our discount in stores until the end of January.”

Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Waitrose and M&S currently offer no NHS discount.

Many companies in the UK are signed up to the Blue Light card scheme. The Blue Light card is the discount service for the emergency services, NHS, social care sector and armed forces, providing them with thousands of discounts online and on the high street.
