Uber Medics – Subsidised rides for NHS and care home staff

November 11 / United Kingdom

We’re pleased to announce that Uber Medics is back, offering 25% off rides for all NHS and UK care home staff, or 50% off when you pay with Mastercard.

This is our way of supporting NHS and care home staff as you continue working to support the country through new Covid-19 restrictions.

What is Uber Medics?

Uber Medics is a ride option designed exclusively for NHS & care home staff as you continue working through the Covid-19 pandemic.

  • 25% cheaper rides compared to regular Uber fares for NHS and UK care home staff (capped at £30 saving per ride)
  • More flexibility on waiting time, to ensure staff can get to their pick-up point
  • Uber drivers receive their normal fee and Uber does not make a profit from Uber Medics rides
  • Available all day, everyday until at least the end of 2020

Further savings with Mastercard

Mastercard is now further subsidising Uber Medics. Pay for your Uber Medics ride with your Mastercard and you’ll automatically receive 50% off, instead of 25%, (capped at £30 saving per ride) which you’ll see discounted before your ride. Offer available from Mastercard until funds run out*. T&C’s apply.
