Builders' Merchants Supporting the NHS

Launched 12 April 2021, ‘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 31 BMF merchants who between them operate 1,225 branches throughout the country. 

Each participating BMF member will offer their own discount deals, averaging a 10 per cent reduction on the standard price, to NHS workers presenting ID such as an NHS staff card.

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 the return to ‘normality’, the merchant industry wanted to come together and thank them. Builders’ merchants taking part will offer 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 below.
