The transportation of supplies, equipment or even people are common but important tasks in healthcare and the skills of professional drivers are required in a variety of settings. The vehicles and cargo vary, but each load is significant.
Drivers are responsible for maintaining supply chains, the efficient delivery of goods, and play an important role in many organisations. They may be based at a specific location and work regular routes or move between various locations and regularly new journeys.
A driving job at the NHS means transporting supplies that people depend on. Cargo could consist of sensitive data, precious equipment or medical samples and prompt, careful deliveries can be a real difference maker. An NHS Delivery Driver could work for clinics, hospital or specific organisations such as the NHS Blood and Transplant. There is also a requirement for patient transfers and collections in non-emergency cases.
