Welcome to SERV Sussex

SERV Sussex is a UK registered charity (Charity number 284455) that provides transport services for blood, blood products and other urgent medical items for NHS Hospitals across Sussex.

The service is provided free of charge to the NHS between the hours of 7pm and 6am, Monday to Friday and 24 hours at weekends and Bank Holidays via a committed team of volunteer riders and drivers mainly using their own vehicles at their own expense.

By offering this free service, SERV enables hospitals to focus their resources on patient care by reducing transport bills.

SERV Sussex also provides free transport for the movement of donated human milk. Please visit the Hearts Milk Bank site for further information. (www.heartsmilkbank.org)

The services are run primarily utilising the volunteer's own vehicle, however, SERV also has a fleet of marked bikes and cars that are funded by charitable donations from the public, businesses and charitable trusts.

Devitt Insurance Services, for example (www.devittinsurance.com), have subsidised the costs of fleet insurance for SERV motorcycles not only in Sussex but across a number of other counties for a number of years. Their support is much appreciated and provides a major cost saving to the charity.

SERV Sussex welcomes enquiries from potential volunteers to be riders, drivers, controllers, administrators and fundraisers. Please see the relevant sections of this website for more information or help NOW by donating some money to help keep us on the road.

The Charity has no paid officers and volunteers receive no recompense for their vehicle running costs.
