Uber is spreading a bit of Christmas cheer to NHS workers this year by offering £20 off taxis or food.
For five days between 23rd and 27th December, NHS staff will be able to get the discount off either Uber cabs or Uber Eats as a thank you for their hard work throughout the year.
The only catch is workers can't get money off on both and they can't use the £20 voucher in one go; workers will be given two promo codes worth £10 each to use on their orders.
"Christmas is a busy time of year for everyone, but perhaps none more so than for NHS staff. To say thank you for everything they do for us all year, this Christmas we're trying to make their lives a little bit easier," says the company.
To redeem the offer, health service workers will need to enter their NHS email address in an online application form and make sure they are registered with Uber or Uber Eats.
To use the code, workers simply have to select 'add promo code' in the 'payment' screen on the main menu.
The news comes after the car-hailing service was stripped of its licence by Transport for London following safety breaches.
But Uber isn't the only company to have treated NHS workers this year. In October, Iceland decided to honour the 'everyday heroes' with 20 per cent off their in-store shop for eight days.
All those working for the NHS, Police, Fire Service, Ambulance, HM Coastguard, RNLI and Armed Forces got the discount from Monday 14th October to Monday 21st October 2019 inclusive.
Sir Malcolm Walker, Iceland's founder, said: "Like everyone else, I am in awe of the amazing work undertaken by our emergency services and armed forces each and every day of the year. They are the people we all rely on when the going gets too tough for the rest of us.
"So we'd like to say a big 'thank you' to all those whose work is dedicated to saving and protecting the lives of others, whether that is in the ambulance service or the wider NHS, the police, fire service, HM Coastguard, and the Army, Royal Navy and Royal Air Force.
"Plus the volunteers who readily respond to our emergency calls in the RNLI and Mountain Rescue teams."
More companies need to take note.
