If you work for the NHS, you can get 20% off the entire menu at McDonald's when ordering via the app for the rest of the year. You'll just need to download the free McDonald's app (IOS/Android) and register for an account using your NHS email address. Once you've done this, you'll then be able to select the 20% discount offer within the deals section of the app. The discount can be used once per week.

If you work for the NHS, you can get 20% off food and drink orders up to £20 at Nando's (find your nearest). If you're dining in, you'll just need to show a valid photocard ID when you order and you can use the discount once per day. If you're with a group and want to give others the discount too, you'll need to put everyone's meals on the same order, but remember the 20% off only works up to £20 – anything over that won't get the discount.
If you don't fancy dining in, you can now get the 20% off if you order for collection, too – Peri nice! You'll just need to register online at Nando's and then apply the discount when you order. You'll need to verify your NHS email address every six months.
