Become a Voluntary Car Driver

Volunteer for East Midlands Ambulance Service and help provide quality patient transport for people travelling to and from hospital appointments.

Voluntary work with EMAS is a great way of gaining experience in preparation for a career in health and social care. It’s also a great way of giving something back to your local community. Volunteering is completely flexible and can be fit around existing commitments such as study, work or family.

The Volunteer Car Service is an integral part of PTS, providing a valuable service to the community for patients with a medical need for transport, and who would otherwise be unable to get to their appointments.

Basic requirements:
• Be able to provide regular availability to volunteer
• Have access to a car with valid MOT, in a good clean condition, covered by comprehensive insurance
• Have a current driving licence (no more than 3 points)
• Be over 18 years of age
Drivers are reimbursed monthly, in arrears for their out-of-pocket expenses and mileage allowance, following submission of a claims expense form. Mileage is reviewed periodically.
Uniform, Equipment and Training:
EMAS will provide a uniform and the necessary equipment to undertake the role. Full training will be given.
