Uber gives NHS staff free rides or meals over Christmas

Written by:
Uber is once again offering NHS workers two free rides over the Christmas period.   

Anyone with an NHS email address will be able to claim two £10 Uber rides to get to and from work.

This year, Uber is also giving NHS workers the chance to get some free food, with the offer of two £10 meals over the festive season with Uber Eats.

Last year, more than 400,000 NHS staff gave up time with loved ones to care for patients and their families on Christmas Day alone.

An estimated 82,000 nurses and 55,000 nursing assistants will be working in hospitals, while 12,000 midwives are expected to welcome around 1,400 babies.

Jamie Heywood, Uber’s regional general manager for Northern and Eastern Europe 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.”

NHS staff can claim their two free Uber trips or Uber Eats codes by visiting and entering their official NHS email address by 09:00am on Friday 20 December.

The Uber and Uber Eats codes can be redeemed for trips and orders to take place throughout Christmas week, from 23-27 December.
