Patient Transport Services
St John Scotland has provided a volunteer-led Patient Transport service in Scotland for many years, with teams of drivers in Dumfries and Galloway, Angus and Dundee and in Fife.
St John Scotland’s Patient Transport scheme in Dumfries and Galloway brings patients from the area outside the region for treatments. The team transport around 150 people annually, with over 500 journeys each year, covering more than 40,000 miles.
The service in Angus and Dundee takes patients to Ninewells Hospital in Dundee for oncology treatment on behalf of the Scottish Ambulance Service. It also transports renal patients to the Arbroath Dialysis Unit on behalf of NHS Tayside six days per week, every week of the year. Dialysis is a life-saving treatment with over 300 patient trips a year, clocking up nearly 100,000 miles on our three dedicated vehicles.
St John Scotland announced a new patient transport service operation for renal patients in Fife in January 2017. The Fife team transport patients who require dialysis treatment to and from their appointments at the renal clinic in Dunfermline’s Queen Margaret Hospital following referrals.
All patients are referred to St John Scotland by the Scottish Ambulance Service or NHS clinic, and volunteer drivers collect passengers from their homes at a pre-arranged time, taking them to their appointments and returning them home afterwards.
