Waitrose announces measures to help NHS workers

Waitrose supermarkets are to set aside a proportion of difficult to find products from each of its store deliveries for NHS staff.

The workers will also be given a priority checkout service in the retailer’s shops through either dedicated NHS checkouts, staff opening up new tills or by allowing them to move to the front of the queue.

The supermarket is making the move  to help health workers who do not have flexibility over what time of day they can go shopping.

Berangere Michel, executive director for customer service at the John Lewis Partnership, said: “Through these steps we want to recognise the tireless work of NHS staff, supporting us all through these unprecedented circumstances. We hope these measures make their life a little easier; our Partners are keen to do something to help, and we are offering this with sincere thanks from us all.”

The John Lewis Partnership will also be donating items such as pillows, phone chargers, eye masks. hand cream and Easter treats to hospitals as it looks to make NHS workers’ breaks more comfortable.

Other initiatives include helping  John Lewis Partnership staff with childcare costs where needed and offering them free meals at work.
