Patient transport service
St John volunteers provide a patient transport service which makes available a number of different services, including:
Transferring patients from either their homes or centres in Gibraltar to the Primary Care Centre, St Bernard’s Hospital, or other centres within Gibraltar.
Patients are normally picked up from St Bernard’s Hospital and transported to and from scan centres at Algeciras or Málaga. Scans include CT scan, MRI, Mammogram, VQ, Doppler, and Holter.
Moving of patients from local hospitals to the airport or to hospitals in Spain for treatment or long-term stays.
Collection of blood and platelets
Our volunteers collect blood and platelets, mostly from Jerez, and bring them to Gibraltar.
