Free Uber Rides in the U.K. for Nurses

The holidays are right around the corner, and Uber, one of the biggest ride-share companies on the planet, is using the occasion to celebrate nurses and other healthcare employees. As a care provider, you work tirelessly for your patients and the larger community. Uber is giving back to healthcare workers to show their appreciation.

The holidays can be brutal for healthcare workers. Facilities run 24/7 even on Christmas day, while injuries tend to skyrocket around this time of year. Public transportation tends to run less frequently on public holidays, and harsh winter weather can make traveling a pain. If you have to work around the holidays, make your commute a little easier with a free ride with Uber.   

Free Uber Rides for NHS Staff

If you or someone you know works as a nurse in the U.K., you don’t have to take the train to work. Call a free ride, courtesy of Uber, instead. Uber is giving free rides to all National Health Service employees. The offer runs from Monday, December 23rd to the end of the day Friday, December 27th.

To retrieve your discount, head over to www.uber.com/nhs. Enter your official NHS email and you should receive your discount code by December 22nd. When you call a car on the Uber app, click the “Add Promo” button, select your discount as your payment method, and you should be all set.

If you work as a nurse in the U.S., you might be wondering why you can’t take advantage of this offer. Uber had to coordinate with the National Health Service to make this discount possible in the U.K. The U.S. healthcare market is made up of hundreds of public and private organizations. Uber would’ve had to coordinate with all these organizations in order to provide free rides for nurses and other healthcare providers in the U.S.

Free Uber Eats for a Delicious Meal at Home

If you feel like staying in and you’re too tired to cook, you can order a meal via Uber Eats. Uber will waive the delivery fee for all National Health Service employees, so you can get delicious food delivered right to your door for less. Take it easy this holiday season and leave the cooking to someone else.

Even if you have to work, you can still find ways to relax and treat yourself over the next few weeks. Use these holiday discounts for nurses to make the most of this special time of year.
