4 x 4 Drivers

North Somerset Community Partnership

Name: 4 x 4 Drivers
Organisation: North Somerset Community Partnership
Location: The trips will be in the North Somerset area and fuel expenses will be covered, North Somerset Community Hospital, Old Street, Clevedon, North Somerset, BS21 6BS
Type: Part Time
Ad hoc - volunteers will be required in the event of snow, ice or flooding which often occurs at short notice. Ideally, we would like people who could commit to morning, afternoon or evenings up until 10 pm during the adverse weather period.

Description

We’re looking for volunteers who have 4×4 vehicles equipped for snow and ice to help our staff get to and from appointments/visits, or volunteers who are willing to drive a hired 4×4.

During adverse weather it can be very hard for clinical staff to reach high priority patients in the community in a normal vehicle. Having volunteer 4 x 4 drivers to transport staff to and from visits will really help us to deliver our service.

- Driving staff to and from appointments, visits which are hard to reach in a normal vehicle.

- Transporting supplies to and from areas which are hard to reach in a normal vehicle.

- Transporting staff to and from shifts at North Somerset Community Hospital.

Organisation Description

NSCP is an employee-owned social enterprise. We provide NHS community health services but are not an NHS organisation. We are free to compete for other contracts and provide other services to the community.

As a social enterprise our goal is to offer high-quality services as well as reinvesting profits back into the communities we serve. This enables us to develop new services to address the needs of the community.

Services We Provide

We provide community-based healthcare services, free to the people of North Somerset. We employ over 600 people who have a wide range of health and therapeutic skills.

We have:

Seven multi-disciplinary community teams
Children's services that work closely with the local authority and families
A learning disabilities team
A community hospital
Specialist services focusing on patients with specific needs

Voluntary Action North Somerset runs the volunteering service on behalf of NSCP.
