IMPORTANTLY our transport service will continue as usual ensuring that patients are still able to attend their cancer related appointments. Patient and volunteer safety and welfare are a high priority for FCSF. Therefore in addition to our usual best practice guidelines, we are also following the current recommendations from the Department of Health. This includes limiting the number of passengers in each vehicle plus the provision of hand sanitiser and wipes for both patients and drivers to encourage good hand hygiene and infection control measures.
If you have any questions or concerns about travelling with our service or would like to book transport
please contact the Rostering Officer on 0428 407 668.
