Yorkshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust is looking for more volunteers to help patients reach vital hospital appointments across the region.

Volunteer Car Service drivers come from all walks of life and volunteer when they have some free time to collect and drive patients to important outpatient and clinic appointments.

More than 80 drivers currently donate their time to the scheme, covering more than 20,000 journeys each month, but there is no minimum time requirement for people who want to get involved.

Full training is provided and volunteers are reimbursed for the cost of miles covered under the scheme.

You need to be aged 18 or over, hold a full UK driving licence with no more than three penalty points and have access to a car with a minimum of four doors, among other checks.
