Financial and Social

Financial wellbeing is an important contributing factor in your overall wellbeing and it’s not simply about a lack of money.

It is about having the capacity to manage everyday expenses, as well as save for the future, and not just about being constantly worried about money.

In addition, it includes a sense of belonging and inclusion, whether that be in NHS Golden Jubilee or in wider society, which supports your general wellbeing.

The following resources, links and services can be accessed to support your financial and social health.

Benefits and Discounts

If you’re thinking about making a purchase and can afford to do so, there are discount websites which do loads of goods and services at discounted prices for NHS workers, including for electrical goods, fashion, jewellery, sportswear, health and fitness, beauty products, restaurants, supermarkets, gifts, holidays and cashback deals.

More money in your pocket!

And remember, when you’re in a shop, ask if they do discounts for NHS staff. Loads of them do so you may get money off your shop by simply showing your ID card.

Company Shop - discounted household goods

Staff can join this via NHS Staff Benefits. Company Shop is a great resource for NHS staff to save money on everyday goods. Colleagues can purchase surplus stock (all in good condition) from a range of UK supermarkets, which would otherwise end up in landfill for small things such as mistakes on packaging. Profit from the shops is used to fund food bank projects, which also help people get back into work, so it's avoiding waste, cheaper for NHS staff and is a fantastic cause.
