TWENTY FOUR HOUR SERVICE

An integral part of our service is being available every hour of the day when someone passes away. Being able to respond to those needs requires a team of dedicated staff, vehicles, and the specialist equipment to ensure the transfer of your loved one is carried professionally, with dignity, and complying with all the Health and Safety legislation.

Whenever a death occurs within the community (different procedures are required for Hospitals) your first call should be to the Searson family. We can give you all the essential guidance required, make sure the death has been pronounced, and we're allowed to attend. Should there be any uncertainties, we will make the necessary calls for you. Once we have taken some information from you, we will contact our Transfer Team. During the day, we aim to attend within two hours, outside working hours, our response time is often within the hour. however, we will keep you informed of who will be attending, the approximate time of their arrival, and should there be a delay, due to waiting for a doctor's attendance, we will keep you informed of that as well. When we attend, we aim to arrive discreetly, no 'Private Ambulance', no flashing lights, just normal looking vehicles so as not to draw any unnecessary attention.
