Christmas isn't a holiday for millions of NHS workers who still need to make sure patients are OK and emergency rooms are staffed regardless of the date.
So, to try and make their lives a little bit easier, Uber has decided to offer them two free trips again this festive season.
But given many might not be working that week, or have an easy trip to work, this year the cab firm decided to also offer two free meals to those not taking advantage of the free rides.
Uber’s Jamie Heywood said: “We all know someone who works tirelessly over Christmas to keep the NHS running and this is our way of saying thank you.
"For the third year, we’re offering NHS doctors, nurses and support staff a helping hand to get to and from work at Christmas time, when public transport is limited. This year, it’s fantastic to extend the offer to provide a free meal to help make those shifts a little easier."
Last more than 400,000 NHS staff – including an estimated 82,000 nurses and 55,000 nursing assistants in hospitals – gave up time with loved ones to care for patients on Christmas Day.
NHS staff can claim their two free Uber trips or Uber Eats codes by visiting www.uber.com/nhs and entering their official NHS email address by 9am on Friday 20 December.
The codes you are sent can then be redeemed for trips and orders to take place throughout Christmas week, from 23-27 December, for up to £10 each.
How to claim
- Go to www.uber.com/nhs
- Enter your NHS email address in the form
- You’ll receive an email with your code(s) by 22 December 2019
- To apply the code open the Uber app, select ‘Payment/Wallet’ from the menu then tap ‘Add Promo’, and enter in your code
- Make sure you redeem your codes between 00.00am on Monday, 23 December 2019 and 11.59pm on Friday, 27 December 2019.
The promotion is open to all NHS staff in the United Kingdom (excluding Northern Ireland) aged 18 years or over who have an Uber account, are compliant with the Uber User Terms, and have an official NHS email address – except employees of Uber, or people directly associated with running the offer.
To be eligible for the promotion, apply the promotion code in the Uber app before completing your trip or in the Uber Eats app at the checkout before completing your order.
