RESCUE Transfer Service

Supporting Thames Valley & Wessex and Sussex

The Network has been working with our partners within the South Central Ambulance Service (SCAS) and NHS England to implement a Network Transfer Service. The interim Thames Valley & Wessex Adult Critical Care Transfer (ACCT) Service, known as RESCUE, went live in December 2020. 

They are able to provide dedicated, fully equipped vehicles and trained staff seven days a week between 10:30 & 23:00.
