More About The Provider

Service Description

Description of Service

Ambulance Car Service Drivers (ACS) are volunteers who use their own vehicles to help with the transportation of patients to and from hospitals and clinics, thereby leaving ambulances free for emergencies and for patients too ill to travel by car. We currently have over 150 volunteers helping out throughout the North East.

Volunteers are not paid for their time, however they do receive out of pocket expenses for their mileage.

The basic criteria you need to be considered as a volunteer driver are
◾Be of good character and provide at least two character references/employee reference.
◾Occupational health clearance.
◾Must have full driving license with maximum of three points.
◾Possess a suitable vehicle.
◾Comply with the DVLA Group 2 driving regulations
◾Undergo an enhanced DBS check

More information is available from the website.

If you are interested in volunteering, please fill out our application form and declaration sheet (found on the website) and send them both together to: acs@neas.nhs.uk
