Dorset NHS workers get free fleet support during Covid-19 crisis

Posted on: 04/05/2020

Nurses, doctors and other vital NHS workers in Dorset will get free 24/7 motoring support thanks to an initiative led by i247 Group. The Poole-based fleet services provider is operating a dedicated phone service to provide NHS workers in Dorset a one-stop shop to keep them and their vehicles on the road.

Teaming up with a wide range of national and local organisations, i247 Group is providing help and support in the event of a vehicle breakdown, managing urgent vehicle repairs, punctures and replacement tyres. It will also be on hand to offer vehicle rental services when required.

Founder and Chairman of i247 Group John Mason said: “During this current COVID-19 crisis we are already supporting critical fleet and key workers nationally through our in-life automotive fleet services, but we wanted to do something more and specifically something for our local community. Hence, we thought helping NHS workers was a great way of saying thank you for all that they are doing for us.”

“By working with various partners combined with the i247 Group ethos of ‘We Do’ , we have been able to bring together, in one place, a single phone number that provides Dorset NHS workers access to a host of services and offers currently being offered by numerous automotive suppliers. We know how hard the NHS is working on our behalf and we like many businesses wanted to show our support. By bringing all the great offers of help into one place we hope we can make it easier for these workers to sort out any issues they have with their vehicle quickly and easily, keeping them mobile during COVID-19.”

By calling one number, the NHS staff in Dorset have access to the following support:
• Providing 24/7 vehicle support and direct access to fast fit centres and garage
workshops that remain open across Dorset
• Free breakdown service with the AA
• Priority access to National Tyres & ATS Euromaster mobile and booked

• Priority access to Nationwide Windscreen Services (NWS) for mobile windscreen and glass replacement
