About the role:

 

The Voluntary Car Service (VCS) is a critical part of any solution to improve experience for patients who have to travel to and from hospital for treatment. Volunteer drivers offer practical and convenient transport for patients who are able to walk, but need transport to and from their homes, hospitals, clinics, and other health premises.

The great advantage of our volunteer drivers is that we can offer patients regular transport with the same driver. Our patients prefer to see the same person when possible where a genuine understanding of individual needs and circumstances can be appreciated on both sides in a friendly way. Some of our volunteer drivers and patients have become great friends over time. We understand that our volunteers may only be able to do certain times/days and will work with you to fit around your availability.

If you have some time and are looking for a vocation that provides real satisfaction that will make a real differences to people’s lives, then this is a role that might suit you.

If you are interested in becoming a Volunteer Driver, we would dearly love to hear from you. Our drivers, and the service they provide, is invaluable to the community we all serve.
