The Freewheelers, although covered by the registration, will continue to provide the free transportation service to the NHS across Devon, as it is has done for the last 10 years.

The service will continue to be operated by the volunteers thanks to donations that the charity receives via the general public, volunteer fundraising, community groups and businesses across Devon, along with support from the EMS operations.

John Conway, CQC registered manager for Devon Freewheelers, said: "This is exciting news for the future of the charity and is testament to the hard work and dedication of everyone involved in making Devon Freewheelers exceptional at what we do."
