Ambulance Care Assistant Volunteer (Inverness)

  • VO89897


Description

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 start as a driver working as part of an experienced team building up your clinical skills over time to become an Ambulance Care assistant. Contracts vary offering shifts both weekday and weekends ranging from 8 to 12 hours, volunteers usually do at least two per month.

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!

For the driving part of the role, you will need to have held a driving licence which allows you to drive in the UK for two years.

**As this role works in care home settings, applicants must be fully vaccinated (at least 14 days after your last jab). **

Our fantastic training team will provide everything you need to know - no prior experience is needed.

Applicants will need to complete a driving assessment and attend a meet & greet with the service team.
