We're proud of our award-winning volunteers

Our Volunteering Team have continued to work throughout 2021 to expand our non-emergency Patient Transport Services (NEPTS) via both patient facing and non-patient facing roles.

Despite the ongoing challenges that the COVID-19 pandemic continues to present, between 1 April 2021 and 12 January 2022, the team has undertaken an impressive 187,775 miles of driving patients to their vital scheduled appointments at hospital.

The team have had their efforts and contributions recognised via one award and three award nominations during the past twelve months – winning the South Derbyshire Community Hero Award.
