Patient Transport Driver - Bo'ness & Grangemouth

  • VO89078


Description

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.

Organisation aims and objectives

St John Scotland was formed in 1947, and for more than 70 years we have helped improve the lives of people in need through our charitable work. Today, our teams of members, volunteers and supporters across the country run projects which help save and enhance lives every day. These include our volunteer-run Patient Transport services, which provide free, comfortable transport to help patients get to hospital, and are a lifeline for hundreds of people going through cancer treatment or dialysis each year.
