In these troubled times where N.H.S staff are risking their lives to fight and save lives of fellow citizens, it is only logical that they need one less thing to worry about.

A lot of N.H.S staff live in rented accommodations provided by the hospital, private landlords or are paying Mortgage to a lender. With a crisis situation to fight, it would help if there were lesser bills to pay for the next 3 months and manage to buy essentials that matter the most. This will help them get less stressed about huge rents and mortgage payments, so that these N.H.S staff can focus on more serious issues like COVID-19. More important if they are themselves unwell after having come in contact with another COVID-19 positive patient or staff colleague and self-isolating. A three month tax break for all N.H.S and Ambulance staff plus a three month break from having to pay rent and mortgage will help divert their funds to buy essentials and support themselves and vulnerable dependants in the family.

I have an example - a fellow colleague with a pregnant wife and a 1 year kid, who is himself unwell and off work after having seen a COVID-19 (later confirmed) patient. He is (and others like him are) currently struggling to make ends meet with the mortgage, baby care and having to care for a pregnant wife. It would ease his burden and give him and others like him a mini-break to prioritise their responsibilities better.
