Just Eat is offering NHS workers 25% off all orders as a way of saying thank you and to show appreciation for their extraordinary work.
Following government restrictions, many restaurants and cafes across the UK have made the decision to close. Those that remain open are only offering takeaways, making food delivery the only way many can enjoy a hot meal they've not had time to cook, after a long shift.
Just Eat works with over 35,000 Restaurant Partners and delivers to 95% of UK postcodes, meaning it's well positioned to support the c1.3 million NHS employees across the country.
As the Covid-19 pandemic has progressed, a number of NHS workers have had to self-isolate from their families. Many have been relocated temporarily to nearby hotels, some of which are without cooking facilities or have closed the hotel restaurant in line with government advice.
Andrew Kenny, UK Managing Director Just Eat, said:'Millions of NHS staff are working round the clock to keep us safe, help the most vulnerable and keep this country going. There's never been a more important time for us to show our support and appreciation for their heroic efforts.
This new discount for healthcare workers comes after Just Eat put in place a £10m emergency support package to assist its small independent Restaurants Partners, to help them maintain their operations and support their staff. Just Eat is also offering financial support for couriers who fall ill as a result of Covid-19 or may need to self-isolate.
