New patient vehicle

Posted on 24 April 2018 by Monika Reichelt

We were delighted to take delivery of a new patient vehicle recently which has been adapted to meet hospice patient needs and makes best use of space whilst maintaining patient accessibility, comfort and safety.  The interior is designed to be configured in many ways for seated and wheelchair use and gives much better flexibility.  Feedback from patients and volunteer drivers alike has been positive, with one patient stating “the new minibus is ideal, it’s more roomy and gives a better driving experience all round”.

The hospice provides transport for patients to access services to and from their home and for day trips when they are unable to access alternative transport.  The patient transport service is provided by a team of hugely committed and skilled volunteer drivers and escorts.
