Coronavirus: AA starts free breakdown service for NHS staff

A leading motoring association has launched a free breakdown service for all NHS workers during the coronavirus pandemic.

The AA has said health service staff who break down on their way to or from work can now call for help, whether or not they are a member of the company, and they will receive assistance.

The service, which is available to anyone with an NHS ID, includes free recovery to and from work, as well as if they break down at home.

It’s a scheme which applies to everyone in the NHS, from cleaners and porters to nurses and surgeons, who have all been described as “crucial” by the AA.

Workers have been invited to register online at theAA.com/nhs to receive a message with the dedicated phone number but will still be able to access help if they are not registered.

Additionally, a dedicated hotline has been set up on 0800 072 5064.
