Yes it's true, if you are a member of the NHS then you are entitled to a free copy of Microsoft Office 2007, 2003 or Office XP for home use. Mac owners can also benefit with a free copy of Office 2004 available. The only thing that you need to pay for is packaging and handling costs which amounts to less than £18 compared with the hundreds of pounds that you could potentially fork out if you buy it from a shop or online.
Being an NHS member myself I was a bit surprised that I had not heard of this arrangement before now. I only found out during a course that I was teaching at when someone happened to mention it in passing.
