Scotservs are Scotland's only Volunteer Emergency Medical Transport Charity. Since 2011 we've been delivering Specialist Medical Logistics Services to NHS Scotland around the clock, 365 days a year. We are able to operate all year round regardless of adverse weather conditions by utilising a range of specialist vehicles; from our Emergency Response Motorcycles & Rapid Response cars through to our various 4X4 support for a true all weather capability .
The most rewarding aspect of ScotsERVS is through our efforts, we are able to support our NHS colleagues to make a real difference to the lives and care of our all-important patient beneficiaries - our services support empowers our NHS colleagues the means to reinvest funds currently utilised in urgent transport (otherwise paid to expensive couriers or taxis) back into areas where it is needed most; frontline services and patient care.
As a Voluntary Professional Service and proud representatives of the third sector, our service costs are funded entirely by generous private and public donations and philanthropic grant funding.
Our volunteers are on Scotland's roads 365 days a year, on average we respond to around 3000 call-outs a year, covering around 1000 miles a month, that said every day is different, sometimes call-outs can be only a few miles, sometimes its a few hundred miles.
