CORK: South West BUMBLEance Service

The Southern Regional was launched in early 2017 and are working in partnership with BUMBLEance to get a brand new Southern Regional BUMBLEette  on the road by 2018. The BUMBLEette will be based on a Mercedez-Benz Vito Van and our primary aim is to help even more sick BUMBLEance children at a local level.

The Southern Regional BUMBLEette will provide efficient, comfortable and safe transportation for King and Queen Bees throughout Munster. The vehicle will be based in Cork and will cover Cork, Kerry, Waterford, South Tipperary and Limerick.

To date we have raised €176,262.01

The Southern Regional BUMBLEette will transport young patients who do not require full ambulance support with a paramedic on board, but who nonetheless are seriously ill and will require transportation to and from paediatric hospitals, respite care centres and hospices throughout Ireland.

The Southern Regional BUMBLEette will:

  • Operate in excess of 240 days per year
  • Be based on 40 – 60 hours per week
  • Complete approximately 500 trips per year
  • Also be utilized as a Children’s Chemo Cab Service 
  • Will work with our Critical Care Ambulance team, our BUMBLEance fleet vehicles and our sensitive Angel Trip service
  • Some journeys will facilitate more than one child on board
  • All of our services are FREE of charge

Benefits of a Southern Regional BUMBLEette:

  • Help even more sick children at a local level
  • Reduce the financial burden for BUMBLEance families
  • Reduce stress for both BUMBLEance child and parent/carer
  • Provide comfortable transportation for Ireland’s youngest patients
  • Provide space for extensive medical equipment, suction machines and medication
  • Promote positive mental health benefits
  • Provide door to door/ bed to bed services
  • Includes both wheelchair and stretcher access/facilities
