Tripadvisor has launched an initiative to connect NHS trusts in the UK with hotels who can supply rooms for essential workers.
Hotels for Health is aimed at frontline healthcare and hospital staff who are unable to return home after they have finished their shifts.
TripAdvisor says it hopes the programme will make a huge difference in the ongoing fight against COVID-19.
The site – www.tripadvisor.com/business/hotelsforhealth – allows NHS trusts indicate their need and for hotels to advise they have spare rooms available.
Tripadvisor will then connect the hotels to NHS trusts.
Kanika Soni, chief commercial officer at Tripadvisor, said: “At this challenging time, we know Tripadvisor can play a unique role in helping to support the accommodation needs of frontline medical workers who seek out temporary housing, and we’re pleased to ask our hotel partners to do the same.
“We know so many frontline medical workers can’t simply return home after work because they live with someone with a compromised immune system, so Tripadvisor is proud to offer help where possible.”
