Patient Transport driver
Do you enjoy driving, have good people skills, and can offer a day or half day a week?
Our Patient Transport teams continually need volunteer drivers to help deliver this vital service. We currently run Patient Transport services in Dumfries and Galloway, Angus and Tayside, Fife, and Perth and Kinross, and are in the early stages of expanding into other parts of Scotland.
Our Patient Transport teams provide a vital service. They help people get to hospital for cancer treatment or dialysis, so they don't have to rely on public transport, or call on favours from friends and family to make the regular journeys.
We’re looking for volunteer drivers between 25-70 years old, who hold a full driving licence. Applicants are required to undergo a PVG disclosure check. All training is provided, and our Patient Transport teams use a fleet of dedicated vehicles, so you won’t have to use your own car.
If you’d like to find out more, send us your details on our Sign Up form and we will be in touch soon.
CPR is one of the most important skills people can learn to help save lives. Our volunteers regularly organise and take part in training sessions to help members of the public learn basic bystander CPR.
You don’t need a medical background to become a CPR Champion - we will provide all the training you need. If you enjoy interacting with members of the public and empowering people with the skills they need to save a life, this is the volunteer role for you.
Being a CPR Champion is an ad-hoc volunteering role, with most events taking place at evenings or weekends.
If you’re interested in getting involved, send us your details on our Sign Up form.
