I started riding motorcycles when I was 16 passing my test at 17 when the tests were simpler than today. My first bike was a Honda MT50 and I have had many bikes along life’s journey. The best by far is my present bike, Honda ST1300 Pan European which I bought myself after a long-distinguished career in the RAF. I have toured all over the UK and Europe on this bike.
SERVSC came to me after I read a poster on the office noticeboard and thought now there’s an idea. After requesting more information and receiving a prompt reply, I was hooked. I thought that I had felt all the adrenaline feelings that were to be had. But each time the phone rings for a call out, the buzz I get is still just as amazing as the first one. This coupled with the great people involved from the controllers to the hospital staff, the smiles and the gratefulness that I encounter makes what we do such an amazing job knowing that you could be saving someone’s life and saving the NHS money too.
Not just delivering Blood Products to hospitals. But, delivering medicine to those that cannot collect it for themselves and cuddly toys donated by local communities to children’s wards promotes a great sense of achievement too.
Whether it’s that early evening call or 2.30am early morning call I am always up for it.
