The Transport Department is made up of a small team of drivers who provide transport across all three hospital sites, the main areas being staff shuttle buses, Pathology, Pharmacy including cancer care labs, medical records, X-ray and post.
Transport Services provide help, support and guidance to staff and Departmental Managers throughout the Trust so that they can fulfil their duties, ensuring that patients and visitors receive the best care and satisfaction. Other areas of support include staff cycle to work schemes that include Network Smart cycle ride training and bicycle maintenance with local support groups. Being a member of the Network Smart group we are able to bring news and information updates throughout the Trust with regards to local bus and rail travel.
