    Well, fkg fair play. Nice to keep seeing these little touches of selflessness.

    tbh that's what it's about - feeling valued...she might not want to game but if he can gift a loved one a game worth a lot of money, she feels valued.
    When I was 17, living at home with my parents, my boss gave everyone a fresh turkey on Christmas Eve... now I couldnt cook it and was only gonna eat a small part of it but it was SO GOOD cming home with that turkey to give to my Mum

    It would be interesting to see if this 'offer' requires NHS staff details to make use of... or the code availed is tied to a NHS ID.

    That said, I don't use the services making the offers available, so I'm almost certainly talking from a watery foundation.

    You need an NHS email address.

    Had a quick look, nothing that my lady is interested in at the moment.

    I suspect this is of more use to other family members, most of the eligible workers will be either working or trying to sleep before going in for the next long shift. My wife is an ex NHS worker, so she won't be eligible.

    TBH it looks like at lot of what's available are steam kids games.

    Not a bad thing to get if you have a young un that needs distracting while you're at work.
