St John Scotland is looking for volunteer drivers from across Forth Valley to join their Patient Transport service, helping people get to and from their appointments at Forth Valley Royal Hospital (FVRH) in Larbert.
The Patient Transport service means patients undergoing kidney dialysis have access to completely free, friendly, reliable transport and the support of volunteers, while the model provides a significant financial saving for the NHS.
The role requires a few hours per week transporting renal patients to and from the Renal Unit at FVRH at pre-arranged times. (Regular morning and afternoon shifts are available, Monday – Saturday.) Volunteers should be aged 25 – 70 years old, with a valid driving licence, full insurance, and access to their own car. (Expenses can be claimed.)
Volunteers will not be required to actively help patients boarding and disembarking vehicles, as all patients referred to the service are mobile.
All required training is provided, along with the St John Patient Transport Uniform and an identification badge. Due to the nature of the role, volunteers are required to have Protection of Vulnerable People (PVG) scheme membership; this will be free for the volunteer through St John Scotland.
To register your interest in this opportunity, or for further information, please contact the St John Scotland Team by phone: 0131 556 8711, or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
