Telegraph launches free digital newspaper subscription for NHS staff

Posted on: April 8, 2020 by Mariella Brown

The Telegraph has launched an initiative granting a free six-month digital newspaper subscription for NHS staff.

Commenting on Twitter, the Telegraph praised NHS staff’s hard work in supporting Britain through the coronavirus pandemic.

“We’re giving all of the wonderful staff of our brilliant NHS a free, six-month digital subscription to The Telegraph, including the full newspaper on your phone or tablet.” The tweet added, “Thank you for being there for Britain.”

The Telegraph’s e-campaign follows a full-page ad in-paper launch, which said:

“The selfless hard work of our brilliant NHS staff has never been more vital – or inspiring.

“In the difficult weeks and months to come, we know you’ll give Britain your all. You always have. So we want to show you how much we appreciate every long night, each hectic day and your endless, unparalleled care.”

The subscription is valid for six months and includes access to the full newspaper including on phones or tablets, and employees do not need to enter payment details to receive the offer.

In order to claim, NHS staff can email NHS@telegraph.co.uk from their NHS email accounts.

The scheme comes in the wake of the Telegraph charity appeal last week which raised a record £200,000 in the first 72 hours. Readers gave money to help those hit hardest financially by the coronavirus crisis.

The money from the appeal will be donated to the national poverty charity Turn2Us, which gives away millions of pounds each year in direct grants to people in need, as well as providing a wealth of practical information and support via its helpline and website.
