NHS staff can now claim free games or subscriptions from new website Games for Carers. All they have to do is enter their NHS email address and choose from more than 85,000 free games.

The idea for the campaign came from VGC writer Chris Scullion who reached out to UK trade body UKIE. UKIE, in turn, onboarded major games companies including EA, Codemasters, Konami, Jagex, Sega, Media Molecule, Xbox and Team 17.

“We’re now looking at around 85,000 codes available when the site launches on Wednesday, with more on the way should they be needed,” said Scullion.

“Our amazing NHS staff are working hard on the frontline in the fight against coronavirus, and it is brilliant to see the UK’s video games industry uniting to say thank you through this campaign,” said Caroline Dinenage, the UK’s Creative Industries Minister.
