The Builders Merchants Federation (BMF) has launched a new scheme to provide NHS workers with discounts at local builders’ merchants. The scheme, launched on 12th April 2021, involves 33 BMF merchants who between them operate 1,225 branches throughout the country. Each participating BMF member will be offering their own discounts, averaging at around a 10 per cent reduction on the standard price. This is for NHS workers presenting ID such as an NHS staff card.

‘Builders’ Merchants Supporting The NHS’ has been developed in recognition of the tireless support provided by healthcare staff throughout the COVID emergency. For the next six months, NHS discounts will be offered by the 33 BMF members at their branches throughout the country.

John Newcomb, BMF CEO, said: “Throughout the pandemic, our NHS workers have gone above and beyond the call of duty to support the health of the nation. As we start to return to ‘normality’, the merchant industry wanted to come together and thank them. Builders’ merchants taking part will be offering expert service as well as access to a wide range of home improvement products at discounted prices.”

The BMF has compiled a full list of participating members, together with an overview of the discount they each provide at www.bmf.org.uk/nhs
