We normally have an intake every month
Without our Volunteers, we would not be able to offer our service to NHS Scotland.
We are a busy service, delivering over 200 items each month right across Scotland and beyond.
After applying to volunteer you will be contacted to join a group MS Teams call with a short presentation informing you of our service and what it's like to volunteer.
We then invite new volunteers to our base of operations at QEUH in Glasgow to start their training. Usually this is a one day classroom based course followed up by top up "on the job" training.
Usually most new volunteers with start on the operations desk handling calls and emails from our NHS colleagues and coordinating our on road teams via the Scotservs radio network.
All probationers start on a Monday to Friday fixed day shift pattern with shifts lasting 10 hours from 8am to 6pm these are selectable to suit your level of commitment with some volunteers doing one each week, others one a month.
Please note it is not possible
to undertake training at night nor weekends.
Once you've been assed and fully trained, you may wish to progress onto the road.
For Driving roles: you your MUST have held a full unrestricted licence for a minimum of 2 years and have experience riding/driving. Upon applying to join you will be expected to undertake an internal assessment based on Police Roadcraft.
