Volunteers use their own vehicles to take patients to and from medical appointments. Volunteers let us know availability i.e, which day/days they wish to do and what times. Volunteers can also let us know what hospitals they are happy to take patients to and what hospitals they would not like to go to. Drivers pick up no earlier than 8.45 am and finish no later than 5.30 pm. Normally it is one patient per driver per car.
