Driving Volunteers

You can volunteer for East Midlands Ambulance Service Non-Emergency Patient Transport Service (NEPTS) in several different roles: Volunteer Car Drivers use their own vehicle to transport patients, who have a medical need for transport, to and from hospital. Voluntary work with EMAS is a great way of gaining experience in preparation for a career in health and social care. It’s also a great way of giving something back to your local community. Volunteering is completely flexible and can be fit around existing commitments such as study, work or family. The Volunteer Car Driver role is an integral part of Non-Emergency Patient Transport Service.
