Due to changes implemented by the NHS from 1st April 2014 we will soon be providing a Volunteer Medical Car Service to residents living in Kettering and surrounding areas.
We urge any current passengers with the previous Car Scheme in Kettering to contact us so that we are able to complete registration and continue the high quality service from April 1st 2014.
You can contact us anytime Monday to Friday between 8:30am - 4:00pm on 01933 272735.
There is an annual fee for membership. Each journey is then charged as per the driver's fuel costs only plus a £1 booking fee. This fee is refundable should your appointment be cancelled by the NHS.
Please call us to request a membership form which can then be completed and posted to us at the address below:
Shire Community Services
1 - 3 Orient Way
For data protection reasons we do not have access to contact details for any volunteer drivers already active in the Kettering area.
Any drivers who would like to continue volunteering with the service after April 1st 2014 are more than welcome to contact us as per the details below:
Rosemarie (Transport Manager)
We will be more than happy to answer any questions and address any concerns you may have with the aim of continuing the service for the many passengers who depend on it within the Kettering area.
