Free data and minutes for our NHS frontline workers – Now Extended until 31st December
We give our frontline NHS England pay monthly customers a free monthly bundle of 5000 minutes and 500GB data. We know how hard you’re working and how tough it can be. This is our way to help keep you connected. Thank you for your remarkable work to help the nation.
The scheme is now closed to new applicants, but if you registered by 31 July then you will continue to get the free data and minutes until 31st December 2020.
Any of our pay monthly customers who are frontline NHS England workers who have successfully registered as told to us by the NHS.
You need to have successfully registered as eligible with your NHS team. To do this, please find the guidance from the NHS below:
The HR director or director of workforce in your organisation is responsible for setting up a process to triage eligible staff. They may nominate a deputy to co-ordinate this.
The co-ordinator will be your single point of contact. You should check whether you’re eligible for the offer before contacting the co-ordinator and requesting a nomination.
Process for NHS employees
4.Your data will be sent to a secure NHS mailbox and then direct to the service provider by a secure transfer.
For an employee process map to help you understand these steps visually, please visit the NHS free data website.
We’ll text you when we’re adding them, and then it will take up to two working days. At the end of two working days the data and minutes will show in your app and My Account as unused. If you see them in the app as already used, don’t worry, that’s just a quirk in our system while we’re adding them for you.
Once we get the details from the NHS, it may take up to seven days to be applied to your account.
Once we’ve sent you confirmation these have been added, you can use them 24/7, there are no restrictions on when you can use the data and minutes.
Your NHS bundles will renew up to 2 working days after your bill date and then last for the rest of your billing month.
It is 500GB, which is our biggest bundle and is as close to unlimited as possible.
We’ve looked carefully at what our pay monthly customers use and it’s very rare that our customers ever use more than their monthly texts, so free data and minutes is much more valuable to our customers.
These are our biggest possible bundles and they are such large monthly amounts that it is effectively the same as unlimited.
We’re sorry that we can’t offer this to pay as you go customers at the moment. We’ll continue to review as the situation evolves and do what we can to support our customers.
