NHS ride of Thanks - Solent

Why we need your help

Fleet

SERV Wessex provides an out-of-hours rapid response service to NHS hospitals, delivering blood, blood products, samples, medication, medical equipment and human donor milk during the times when other transport options to the NHS may be limited, including every night, weekends, and public holidays. They also resupply the blood and plasma carried on the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance and critical care cars.

From April 2020 SERV Wessex has been providing a full 24hrs service supporting Hospital in-house Pharmacies delivering medication to shielding and vulnerable patients in the community and supporting Pathology Departments with urgent sample transportation. This gave the NHS access to their committed and highly trained volunteers 24 hours a day, 7 days a week during the pandemic. 

Since January 2020 their volunteers covered over 266,000 miles on duty and completed over 4000 jobs, which included over 3170 medication deliveries to the community. 

The service is provided free by volunteers and as the charity only has a small fleet, 70% of the mileage completed was by volunteers using their own vehicles and paying all their own. 

SERV Wessex were awarded the Queens Award for Voluntary Service on the 2nd June 2021 in recognition of thier volunteers service to the NHS and the Community during the Pandemic.

The organisers of the ride are suggesting a £5 donation if you would like to do the ride and there is plenty of merchandise for sale from the rides facebook page.
