NHS Highland Estates has added seven new Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles to its fleet.
NHS Highland Estates covers over 10,000 square miles of rugged mountain terrain and is responsible for maintaining healthcare facilities throughout remote Scottish regions. With the requirement to complete urgent journeys on some of the most challenging roads in the UK, the organisation places exceptionally high demands on its fleet of commercial vehicles.
NHS Highland Estates knew exactly where to turn when it wanted to add to its range of response vehicles
Having already experienced the reliability and efficiency benefits of having Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles on its fleet, NHS Highland Estates knew exactly where to turn when it wanted to add to its range of response vehicles. Seven new models are set to join the fleet, and will work alongside the organisations’ current fleet of:
- Caddy C20,
- Caddy C20 Maxi,
- Caddy C20 Kombi and
Among the new models being added to the NHS Highland Estates fleet are an Amarok pick-up and a Transporter 4MOTION – both of which were selected for their incredible ability to go where others fear to tread.
Thanks to Volkswagen’s Service Promise, NHS Highland Estates will be guaranteed a like-for-like replacement vehicle should the unforeseen happen – a crucial factor given the organisation’s need for four-wheel drive.
The healthcare service has also opted for BlueMotion Technology throughout the fleet where possible, to increase fuel-efficiency and produce low CO2 emissions to help cut fuel costs and reduce its carbon footprint.
Magnus Bain, maintenance manager for NHS Highland Estates said, “The work of NHS Highland Estates is vital to servicing healthcare facilities throughout some of the remotest areas of Scotland.”
