A unique volunteer service to help deprived children of Greater Manchester
Transport for Sick Children is a referral only service. Health Professionals who work closely with families and best able to assess the health needs of children. Health Visitors, School Nurses, Midwives, Community Nurses and Social Workers are among the majority of referrers. Very often they are the ones making the hospital appointment.
Volunteers are dedicated to helping children and have time to give freely. They use their own vehicles and are supplied with child car seats to transport children both legally and in comfort. All children are accompanied by an adult parent or carer. Volunteers pick up from home, take to appointment, wait until treatment is given then take them home.
