From Monday, we will be offering shopping times exclusively for NHS staff.

Please note that NHS staff will need to bring photo ID to shop with us during these hours and we won’t be allowing any other customers into store, to strengthen health and safety measures.

We will also be taking card payments only during this hour.”

Iceland has it has had a “fantastic response“ to its priority hours for the elderly and the vulnerable and they are set to continue.

“We’re keeping these hours separate, but will continue to offer them for as long as needed.

We’ll aim to conduct a clean of our stores following our NHS exclusive hour.”

Specific timings for each store will be communicated via window posters Iceland has said.
