There is a Driver and a Support Person in each vehicle and they pick up the patients at their homes and deliver them right to the reception counter of the appropriate Ward, or, Clinic. Following the Patients appointment, the Driver, or, the Support Person will collect them from the Ward, or, Clinic, take them back to the mini-bus and deliver them back to their home. Transport is provided in 2 x 12 seat & 1 x 8 seat mini-buses, each equipped with a defibrillator, a wheelchair, a comprehensive first aid kit, blankets, vomit bags, water bottles and a fire extinguisher.

Urban passengers are picked up at their homes, but, due to time factors, most rural passengers make their own way in to town and travel with us from there.
