Description of services: Volunteer drivers will drive either their own car or the client’s car to a medical appointment. We ask the client to reimburse the driver for petrol. The client is able to take a support person but the driver will act as a support person themselves if required. Most trips are for one person.
The client phones the Te Kuiti Bureau and the interviewer on duty will then contact a driver. The arrangement details are then made between the driver and client once the initial contact has been established.
Area covered: We will drive to Waikato , Rotorua Hospital, Te Awamutu , Otorohanga and Te Kuiti
