All about being a volunteer car driver

As a Volunteer Car Driver

Did you know that Volunteer Car Drivers are responsible for nearly 50,000 of the 545,000 journeys undertaken by the Non-Emergency Patient Transport Service? We currently have 97 VCDs across Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Berkshire and Hampshire, but need more.

What it entails

Our fleet of volunteer drivers take patients to and from scheduled medical appointments – supporting them, their communities and the NHS in the process. You will be a reassuring and familiar face to those who need transport in the short and long term. Using your own car, you can choose regular hours – and we will reimburse you for your mileage costs.

You need to…

Have a presentable car less than 7 years’ old and in excellent working order, a clean driving licence, be community-minded, warm hearted and patient.
