Between Christmas Eve and Boxing Day, the company will offer thousands of NHS England staff free journeys to and from work, a time they say can be tricky for travel

Committed NHS staff will be able to travel with Uber for free on key dates this Christmas.

Between Christmas Eve and Boxing Day, the company will offer thousands of NHS England staff free journeys to and from work, a time they say can be tricky for travel.

From Monday December 3, doctors and nurses through to support staff will be able to claim the offer via the Uber website.

It will entitle the member of staff to two £10 vouchers which can be used between December 24 and December 26.

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 21 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 24.
