The vehicles include two Kodiaqs and three Karoqs, which were chosen for their load space and reliability; vital requirements in order to safely carry the clinicians’ medical equipment and passengers comfortably across the vast counties.

The order, which is being financed by Lookers Leasing and managed by Škoda fleet, also includes seven Octavia Scouts offroad estates, which will provide ample load space for the medical team while their 4×4 capabilities and rough road protection package will aid use during bad weather on country roads.

Jerry Hollands from Medvivo commented: “Our clinicians provide an important service to NHS patients in their own home and our fleet of vehicles is the backbone of that support system. The vehicles have been with us a few weeks and already I’ve had fantastic feedback from drivers who are impressed by the cars.”
