Northern says NHS workers across the North of England should remember to claim a special 25 per cent 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 on Friday, July 5.

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 per cent 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 per cent 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.
