What is the service?
The service comprises a group of volunteer drivers who take patients from their home directly to the hospital or other facility in which they are receiving treatment and/or consultations. Where patients are undergoing day treatments, they will also be brought back home after their day treatment has finished. We can also take patients to a hospital where they are being admitted and bring them back home after they have been discharged as an inpatient.
Locations to which we take the patients?
We transport patients from all over Cowal to the major hospitals in Greenock, Paisley, Glasgow and Clydebank.
Who can use the service?
Anyone who is suffering from a life limiting illness who is resident in Dunoon and the Cowal peninsula.
