Why Motorcycles? what advantage are they to the NHS?
Put simply, motorcyclists always want to go for a ride, and if they can help someone along the way then that's just a bonus.
Our volunteers ride hi-visibility motorcycles similar to police motorcycles, this enables other road users to see us and aid us to get our destination with minimum effort. All of our riders should start out volunteering with us with a good motorcycle background this includes an Advanced qualification (details bellow) they should also have a minimum of 2 to 3 years of riding experience as this role involves long hours in the saddle.
Working weekdays (as this is when things are busy) you'll form the backbone of the Charity service provision to the NHS in Scotland.
We have an online rota that volunteers can pick a day that suits them to volunteer, we usually ask that you volunteer at least once per month but while starting out you may need to commit some more time to learn the ropes.
Training will be provided "on the job" you'll be paired up with a senior volunteer who will be able to impart they're knowledge learned over the years.
New volunteers will also recive training in Basic Life support, first person on scene with some longer term volunteers going onto qualify with FREC3/4
Training will also include Radio and communications procedures.
As the role involves driving, a basic knowledge of the area is required, whitest we do have GPS its always best to have a rough idea where things are located.
If this sounds like something you'd like to get involved with, please use the application bellow, or if you have any questions use the online chat feature.
