St John Scotland is looking for Volunteer Coordinators to support their Patient Transport service in Fife. The service supports people living with chronic kidney disease to access dialysis treatment at the Victoria Hospital in Kirkcaldy and Queen Margaret Hospital, Dunfermline three times a week. The St John Scotland service means they have a reliable, friendly service they can depend on. As a volunteer Patient Transport Coordinator, you will be the main link between the team of volunteer drivers and the NHS renal units, ensuring the service runs smoothly and efficiently. You will volunteer alongside another volunteer Coordinator to manage volunteer schedules, support volunteer driver recruitment and induction, and manage administration and record keeping for the service. This is an ideal role if you want to make a real difference by helping people in your community. It's a role with a lot of responsibility, but one that brings a lot of reward. The role would be most suitable to someone who can commit around 5 hours a week, but can also be flexible with their time as there may be occasions when the Coordinator is required to respond to short-notice changes to patient journeys or volunteer availability. They are looking for someone who is based in Fife who is familiar with the local area. Applicants will be required to undergo a PVG check as part of the recruitment process.

St John Scotland works in partnership with the Scottish Ambulance Service and local NHS Trusts to provide patient transport for people attending oncology and renal clinics. All passengers are referred to us by the Scottish Ambulance Service or NHS clinics. A standard dialysis prescription is treatment for approximately 4 hours, 3 times a week. Patient Transport services are so valuable as they contribute significantly to reducing patients’ anxieties about transport costs, how they might get to dialysis or over-burdening loved ones. As a Patient Transport Driver, it will be your role to transport renal patients to and from the Renal Unit at Forth Valley Royal Hospital (FVRH) in Larbert. This service is completely free to patients. Drivers will need access to their own car and all vehicles and drivers require full insurance.
