NHS workers across the region can get 25% off rail travel

Date published: 05 July 2024

NHS workers across the north of England are being reminded to claim a 25% discount on ‘advance purchase tickets’ on Northern Rail.

The train operator issued the reminder ahead of the 76th anniversary of the creation of the NHS today (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.
