Patient Transport Services - St John Scotland

Patient Transport Services

St John Scotland has provided a volunteer led patient transport service to the NHS and Dumfries and Galloway for nearly 20 years. 

The service transports patients from Dumfries and Galloway to hospitals outside of the region for treatment. The service transports around 150 people annually, with over 500 patient journeys each year, covering more than 40,000 miles. 

The service in Angus and Dundee takes patients to Ninewells Hospital in Dundee for Oncology treatment on behalf of the Scottish Ambulance Service. This service is augmented by the volunteer drivers in Perthshire who bring patients from that region to Dundee. 

The other service takes renal patients to the Arbroath Dialysis Unit on behalf of NHS Tayside six days per week every week of the year. Dialysis is a life-saving treatment with over 3000 patient trips each year, clocking up nearly 100,000 miles on our three dedicated vehicles. 

St John Scotland announced in January of 2017 a new patient transport service operation for renal patients in Fife.
