Volunteer Patient Transport Convenor - Ballarat

Apply now Role no: 495119
Availability: Business hours
Time involved: Varied hours
Location: Regional VIC

  • Monday - Friday (Business Hours)

The program
The Red Cross Patient Transport Service provides transport for eligible persons to "essential" hospital and/or specialist appointments for people that have no other means of transportation. The service is extremely important and closes a significant gap, particularly for people that are isolated and unable to afford or use mainstream options.

The opportunity
The Patient Transport Convenor is the person that receives the referrals, supports the drivers and brings the two together to see people transported to and from appointments. Co-convening provides opportunities to share the role and make the most of particular strengths and opportunities for learning and applying skills. There are administration, coordination and logistics involved and there is never a dull day. 

The impact
As a Patient Transport Convenor Volunteer, you’ll help improve the quality of life and well-being of people who are elderly or have disability by connecting them with services in their local community. There are around 15 Red Cross volunteer drivers that operate in the Ballarat program. 

Red Cross will ensure you have training, ongoing support and access to other opportunities within the world’s largest humanitarian network.

For more information, please see the volunteer role description or contact Craig Norman on 03 8327 7720.
