Volunteers Week 2019: Volunteer Car Drivers

Volunteer Car Driver infographic Volunteers Week 2019

We are starting off our series of Volunteers Week features with our volunteer car drivers.

Within EEAST, we have 59 volunteer car drivers spread across four of the six counties within our region and in the six months ending 31st March they undertook a total of 23,147 journeys transporting non-emergency patients as part of Team EEAST.

They live and work within their local community and give up their time to assist with our patient transport service (PTS) by transporting patients to and from hospital appointments, treatment centres and other health facilities. They play an essential role providing outstanding patient care and for the patients they help. Our volunteer car drivers really are an essential part of the patient transport service.
