Volunteer Driver Needed

About the opportunity

Manor Park & Hempstead Fields Association need two volunteer drivers on an ad hoc basis for their Surgery Car Service.

A DBS is an essential requirement. The organisation will meet the cost of this and assist with the process of the application..

Practical Considerations

They need one or two additional people to expand their happy group of existing volunteers to provide more flexibility when the surgery car service face absences due to holidays and work commitments.

Their team of drivers are called upon on an ad hoc basis and are not expected to be available on particular days or times, only responding when they are free to.

The service operates 10am to 4pm, Monday to Friday, by appointment (not on the same day) picking up customers from Manor Park and Hempstead Fields estates in north Uckfield and then taking them to and from the Meads, Buxted and Bird in Eye GP surgeries,plus short appointments at the Uckfield Hospital.

Drivers wait for the passenger at the surgery ready for the return trip.

The driver collects £3.50 from the passenger and retains £2.50 for each round trip to cover fuel costs etc( £3.00 in the case of Buxted) This equates to about 45p per mile and avoids tax issues.

Drivers are not expected to do any heavy lifting.

DBS checks are organised and paid for by the Association.

The only GP surgeries served are local.
