Northern reminds NHS workers to claim 25% discount on train journeys on eve of health service’s 76th anniversary

Northern says NHS workers across the North of England should remember to claim a special 25% discount on Advance Purchase tickets on its services.

The train operator issued the reminder ahead of the 76th anniversary of the creation of the NHS tomorrow (Friday, 5 July).

The saving, which is available via Health Service Discounts, is delivered in partnership with Network – a company that specialises in employee discounts and benefits.

The discount is available on all of the train operator’s 2,500 services a day.

Stuart Taylor, head of commercial development at Northern, said:

“We were very proud to launch this special discount last year – and we want to encourage as many NHS workers as possible to benefit.

“The discount is valid on each and every one of our services – and over time a 25% discount really adds up.”

Northern launched its partnership with Network in March 2023.

As part of the scheme, the train operator also offers a 25% discount on Advance Purchase tickets to carers, teachers and employees of registered charities.

Northern is the second largest train operator in the UK, with 2,500 services a day to more than 500 stations across the North of England.
