A CHARITY which transports vital medical supplies around the NHS out-of-hours has bought a new motorcycle thanks to donations from the public.

SERV Wessex, which covers Hampshire, Dorset and Wiltshire, bought the Honda NT700 to aid the work of its volunteers who deliver blood, samples and medical notes.

It joins a collection of other vehicles used by SERV, including a BMW motorbike and a Vauxhall van. Stuart Graham, the service’s regional co-ordinator, said: “Our volunteers already give up many hours of their time overnight and at weekends to provide a free service to the NHS. If we can make their life easier by providing fully-funded and properly equipped vehicles they can continue to offer their much needed-service without having to worry about fuel and maintenance costs.”

The group aims to secure more vehicles in the future so supplies can be distributed to other counties. Mr Stuart added: “This will reduce the logistical problems in sharing the vehicles and allow more of our members access to them.”

SERV currently offers full training to volunteers. For more information visit servewessex.com.
