Volunteer car drivers

Could you, or someone you know, help us? 

Do you like driving? Do you like meeting new people? Do you have some time to spare? If so, have you considered becoming a Volunteer Car Driver with South Central Ambulance Service 

Our Patient Transport Service helps hundreds of people access hospital services every day of the year. 

We are assisted by a dedicated professional band of Volunteer Car Drivers, who provide transport using their own cars, for patients who experience difficulties travelling to their appointments. 

Our volunteers come from many different backgrounds but all have a common bond in wanting to give something back to their communities!  No previous experience is required just a friendly caring attitude and some spare time. We offer complete flexibility so you can volunteer as little or as much as you like, whilst fitting in with other commitments. 

In recognition to your contribution we offer you

  • Mileage Allowance 
  • Ongoing Support 
  • Uniform and equipment 

In order to become a Volunteer Car Driver we require you to have the following:

  • Be aged over 18 
  • Have a valid UK driving licence with no more than 3 penalty points 
  • Have access to a 4 door car 
  • Undertake a Disclosure and Barring ( DBS ) check 
  • Able to use a mobile phone 

As part of the Application process you will be invited to attend: 

  • Occupational health screening 
  • Basic driver assessment 
  • Volunteer induction, this will give you the opportunity to meet other Volunteers and support staff. 

If you feel this is something you would enjoy, apply online by emailing: volunteer.cardriver@scas.nhs.uk
