Patient Transport Driver - Stirling & Falkirk

  • VO83933


Description

As a St John Scotland Patient Transport driver you are the friendly face patients see when they’re picked up at home on their way to treatment, or from the hospital once it’s complete. You’re the person who makes life easier, who they can rely on… and have a blether with!

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.

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. Our Patient Transport services are a lifeline for people who rely on us to get to hospital for life-saving treatments.

Whether providing CPR training, increasing public access to defibrillators, being Community First Responders or transporting patients to hospitals, St John Scotland is there when it matters most. We believe when we work together, we can save lives.
