Service by Emergency Response Volunteers...
SERV Kent, also known as the 'Bloodrunners', is a charity that transports blood products and samples for the accident and emergency hospitals and blood banks across southern England at night, weekends and Bank Holidays. Local hospices including Demelza House and Ellenor are supported with the transport of small equipment and medicines and we transport essential samples for patients on home dialysis.
We also supply "Golden Hour Blood" on a daily basis to the HEMS unit of the Kent, Surrey and Sussex Air Ambulance Trust, operating out of Marden in Kent. This blood enables specialist doctors and critical care paramedics at the scene of an incident to provide immediate intervention and stabilisation of patients, so they can then be transferred quickly to a specialist hospital.
All our services are provided free of charge!
SERV Kent exists because of a dedicated group of volunteers including motorcyclists and drivers giving their time, fuel and vehicles as well as controllers giving their time and phone expenses purely to help others. We are almost always looking for more members and so if you feel you can help please look at the volunteer roles and then get in touch or apply.
