St John Scotland Ayrshire & Arran
We need you!

St John Scotland Ayrshire & Arran is starting a patient transport
service for renal patients in University Hospital Ayr.
We are recruiting volunteer drivers to transport dialysis patients to
and from the Renal Unit at University Hospital Ayr. This is a new
initiative, completely free for patients.

All patients are referred to St John Scotland by NHS Ayrshire & Arran.

Volunteer drivers, using their own cars, collect passengers from their
homes in Ayr (initially) at a pre-arranged time, taking them to the
hospital and returning them home afterwards. We pay mileage costs.
A few hours per week is all that we ask. This opportunity is hugely
