St Joh provides a free Health Shuttle service to help people with health or mobility problems getting appotinments with doctors, specialists or hospitals. While the servce is free, people are encouraged to make a donation where possible, as St John is a charitable organisation. Predominantly Health Shuttle users include young mothers and their children, elderly people, and anyone with mobility or health problems where attending a medical appointment without assistance could be a real challenge. All Health Shuttle Volunteers are trained in first aid and attend a St John driving course. All Health Suttle vehicles are fully equipped to make travelling in them as comfortable and supported as possible. St John Health Shuttles run Monday to Friday
