 The McDonald’s NHS staff discount was announced in July 2021 and has been popular ever since - but the fast food giant confirmed it will come to an end soon

McDonald’s is set to end its popular NHS staff discount this month. The 20% offer was announced by the fast food giant in July 2021 to thank emergency service workers for their hard work during the coronavirus pandemic.

The special deal was available for NHS staff to use when purchasing food through the McDonald’s app, but the restaurant chain has now confirmed that next year the discount will no longer be available.

As a result, time is ticking for NHS workers to take advantage of the festive food discount. The offer is available at most McDonald’s restaurants across the UK - however, a small number are exempt, so it’s worth checking on the McDonald’s website.

Steve Bater, spokesperson for the NHS Money Saving blog NHS Discount Offers, said: “The McDonald’s 20% discount has been one of the most popular food discounts for NHS staff to take advantage of in the last year and it’s still a great way for NHS staff to save on their McDonald’s takeaways.

"Times are tough this Christmas and every little helps as we look to save money wherever we can. The UK is still in the midst of the cost of living crisis and it’s really appreciated that McDonald’s can still help NHS staff save during the festive period. It’s been a really kind gesture from the fast food giant and we appreciate them running the discount for staff until the end of this year."

Wait around 48 hours for the offer to appear in the deals section of the app and then it’s ready to use. You can only use the deal one day a week before it refreshes every Monday.

Police officers, social care workers, people in the Armed Forces and firefighters can also claim the offer. The full terms and conditions can be found on the McDonald’s website.
