Christmas is the time for giving and while many of take time off to spend with family and friends, hundreds of thousand NHS employees across the UK stay put to take care of citizens and visitors in need.
Unfortunately this is also the busiest time of year for emergency services and according to a 2017 NHS report, around 400,000 employees work over the festive period, including about 97,000 nurses, 53,000 nursing assistants, 176,000 care workers, 12,000 ambulance drivers and 12,000 midwives.
Uber came up with a great idea to thank NHS employees for their dedication with a gift of two free taxi rides to all NHS employees between 23 and 27 December and, for those who don’t need transport, an alternative option of two free Uber Eats meals.
Uber’s Jamie Heywood said they are happy to be able to help those who work so hard to care for us: ‘’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.”
To take advantage of Uber’s offer, you’ll have to beat the deadline of 9am on 20 December. Visit www.uber.com/nhs and enter your official NHS email address. Uber will then email two codes to your email address by 22 December which can then be redeemed for trips and orders, up to the value of £10 ($13) each.
To apply the code you need to open the Uber app and select ‘Payment/Wallet’ from the menu, then tap ‘Add Promo’, and enter your code. Orders have to be made between midnight on Monday 23 December 2019 and 11.59pm on Friday 27 December.
The promotion is open to all NHS staff in the United Kingdom (excluding Northern Ireland), aged 18 years and over, with an Uber account – so if you haven’t yet registered, do so now and enjoy!
