From this week, NHS doctors and nurses through to support staff will be able to claim free rides to use over the festive period through the Uber website.

Staff will be entitled to two £10 vouchers which can be used between December 24th and December 26th.

Jamie Heywood, Uber’s general manager for Northern and Eastern Europe, told the Mirror.co.uk: “NHS staff will have enough to worry about this Christmas, so we’d like to at least try to take care of their travel.

“During a time when it isn’t always easy to get from A to B, we hope that this offer will help them get home to their families sooner.”

Matt Hancock, Health Secretary, added: “Everyone wants to be home with their families for Christmas Day but so many of our selfless NHS staff give up their holidays to care for those who need it most.

“It’s great that Uber have agreed to step in and offer a free ride home this Christmas and I hope this makes life a little easier for our dedicated NHS workers.”

To register, you will need to enter your NHS email address into the online form and by December 21st you will receive the codes you need for travel.

To add the codes to your account, you need to select ‘Add Promo Code’ in the ‘Payment’ section of the Uber app.

Registration must be complete before 9am on Monday December 24th.
