Starting a List of Stores for NHS Staff, Vulnerable and Elderly People

Ask a Question

Hi, I'm not sure if it'd be of interest. But I was thinking maybe it'd be good to have a list of stores that are offering a designated hour for NHS staff, vulnerable and elderly people to shop for essentials. Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks 😍

Great to see supermarkets offering NHS priority time, slight problem for a lot of them is that day shift starts at 7.30am and night shift ends at 8.00am

Tesco

NHS staff can browse Tesco stores every Sunday one hour before checkouts open - this means times may change between stores.

Elderly or vulnerable people can visits 9am-10am every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

NHS and emergency staff have Tuesday and Friday for 1 hour and many other stores like Tesco Asda and Sainsbury's are doing this to help the vulnerable.

There weren't before? I would think there would be more younger people on here now during the day who were previously working.

Lynibis No they are all playing xbox and ps4

By the standard of the replies and abuse i have had after only a few days on here it does seem like a place for the politically correct no sense of humour old folks brigade

Even had some idiot complain about my username has everyone lost their sense of humour or are they all just a bunch of old fart5 on here

HughJarsse your posts would suggest you could be the brother of someone else on here, your posts are so similar. Some folk do prefer politeness and I don't think it is fair that their feelings are discounted because others have a no holds barred attitude to life. No one gets abuse unless their comments invite it.

Anyone know about Iceland? Their website isn't very helpful unfortunately. Would be useful to go tomorrow morning but don't want to wait and find out I can't go in.

Glitterandgold thanks for that. They've recently moved back opening by an hour too (9am) so I guess most others cash only go in at 11?

MeestairChrees If store opening is 9am, you should be good to go do your shopping by 10am. That's certainly what it is in my local store. NHS staff are the final hour of shop opening times.
