Appeal for volunteer patient transport drivers

Date of Event:    March 5, 2023

St John Scotland Ayrshire & Arran is currently seeking volunteer drivers who could offer a few hours per week of their time to transport dialysis patients to and from the renal unit at University Hospital Ayr.

This new initiative is completely free for patients, who are referred to St John Scotland by NHS Ayrshire & Arran. Volunteer drivers, using their own cars, will collect passengers from their homes in Ayr (initially) at a pre-arranged time, taking them to the hospital and returning them home afterwards. All mileage costs will be paid by St John Scotland.

If you are interested in this rewarding role, or if you have any further questions, please contact Colin McCormick, Patient Transport Lead, by emailing Colin.
