Car Aid Rhynie
A project which has been up and running since 29 June 2009. The aim of the organisation is to fill the gaps where there is no transport provided by the hospital transport service.
Due to cut backs it has become a problem for patients to get to certain clinics and CAR will be able to provide transport if required. If the surgery is unable to arrange transport they will ask the patient to contact the CAR organiser who will arrange for a volunteer driver.
This service also provides transport to clinics at Rhynie Medical Practice if the patient has no other means of getting there.
Patients will be given an envelope by their driver and can give a donation if they wish.
All drivers are covered by liability insurance, have had Disclosure checks, possess a clean driving licence and are comprehensive insured.
Fund raising will be ongoing in order to sustain this service.
