We need warm, friendly volunteers to drive people to and from hospital and other medical centres. This will help people to get the medical treatment that they need.

You will be transporting people with very limited mobility, a lot of whom will need to be moved by stretcher. We also transport COVID positive patients. It is a long physical day doing on average 6 to 8 transports in a twelve-hour shift so it's not for the faint hearted!
