Christmas is around the corner, this can usually be an expensive time of the year. Did you know NHS staff have access to many free discounts and offers?

Take a look at our financial wellbeing resources page to see what savings you can make this season. You’ll find information on:

Money Advice Service
NHS England and Improvement are working with the Money Advice Service, an organisation who work to improve people's financial wellbeing across the UK, to provide all NHS employees with free and independent financial support.

NHS employees can contact the Money Advice Service support lines in the following ways for free confidential and impartial money advice:

  • Free telephone: 0800 448 0826
  • Whatsapp: Add 07701 342744 to your WhatsApp and send the Money Advice Service’s national support team a message for help with sorting out your debts, credit questions and pensions guidance.
  • Webchat: Chat to one of the Money Advice Service team via their online portal.

Financial wellbeing and Covid-19
An impact of the current Covid-19 restrictions may mean that many households, of which NHS colleagues form a part, are financially compromised. This can contribute to increased levels of stress and anxiety for these colleagues, at a time when stress and anxiety may already be heightened.

If you're finding things difficult, talk to us today, we can help refer or signpost you to appropriate services such as Citizens Advice Bureau for further support.
