Volunteer drivers wanted at Bronglais Hospital, Aberystwyth

Bronglais General Hospital is looking for enthusiastic and considerate volunteers to help with the transport of patients, staff and items.
Whether you can spare a few hours once a week or a couple of days each month, there will be an opportunity for you.
Each volunteer will need to have their own car to respond to ad hoc transport requests, with driving costs reimbursed at the University Health Board’s volunteer mileage rate.
A good knowledge of the local area or a satellite navigation system is required as you will sometimes need to collect people from their own homes, or take them back from hospital.
To become a volunteer driver you will need to meet the following requirements:
- You must have a minimum of 5 years driving experience
- You must have no more than 3 points on your driving licence
- You must be able to respond to a transport request within 20 minutes (during the period you have identified yourself as available)
- Your car must have four doors, be clean and smoke free, and regularly checked and serviced
- You need to have valid insurance that will cover you while driving for the University Health Board
You will not be required to support patients with walking as they will be able to get into and out of the vehicle unaided.
All volunteers will be closely supported by the Central Transport Unit and Volunteering for Health Service who will guide you through the whole process.
Above all we are looking for volunteers who are kind and considerate and have a genuine interest in supporting patients in their local community.
If you think this opportunity is right for you, please contact the Central Transport Unit, Hywel Dda University Health Board, on 01267 229620.
