Welcome to the Suffolk Accident Rescue Service (SARS) website

We provide specially trained doctors and paramedics to assist the East of England Ambulance Service at the scenes of serious incidents - both accidents and medical illnesses.
For more than 43 years we have provided advanced pre-hospital medical care to local communities throughout Suffolk and its border areas with Norfolk, Essex & Cambridgeshire. SARS doctors and paramedics are all unpaid volunteers who provide their services without any cost to the patient, ambulance service or tax-payer. Since 1972 we have attended thousands of incidents and helped save hundreds of lives. We rely on voluntary donations to maintain our life-saving activity.


"I am proud to be a volunteer doctor for the Suffolk Accident Rescue Service and to serve the people of Suffolk.
The part SARS plays in the integrated system of pre-hospital critical care is vital to the people of Suffolk and beyond.

Dr Pam Chrispin, Chair, Suffolk Accident Rescue Service
