Help with transport to hospital or other friendly support

Who are Continuing Care?

Continuing Care Service (North East Fife) was established in 1980 by two McMillan nurses who helped cancer patients to get to their important hospital appointments.

Our service is built upon a doctrine of helping local residents get to all types of medical appointments, especially in areas that are not renowned for good hospital transport facilities, such as rural areas.

Approximately 2 years ago The Scottish Ambulance Service, the original first point of call, started to cut back on the availability of their service to the public at large, limiting their service to those of the greatest medical need.

They now refer the clients they can not help to Continuing Care - As a result, many people require our help. 

We are a registered charity with thirty years experience, striving to cater to the needs of those who require reliable transportation to and from health related or any associated social appointments.

"The transport provided through Continuing Care during my recent illness immeasurably improved my life. The organisation was superb. The drivers were unfailingly attentive and friendly. I cannot express how grateful I am for the help given."

David

"Thank you for this service. Mr Kerr was so kind and helpful to my husband. We have used your service twice and are most grateful to all the helpers. It is such a relief not to worry about hospital journeys. Our best wishes to all"

Moira and Chris

"The charity has been a life line for my dad who has dementia. He now has a wonderful lady who visits once a week for a chat and a coffee. Dad really looks forward to these visits which is important for him as he doesn't go out much. To the befriending team thank you, you do an amazing job."

Val

"Long may this service continue! Fiona - the lady that organises the runs - and all the drivers are extremely helpful"

Sheila Barclay

"Thank you and the Continuing Care Service for all the support you gave my Mum. I know she enjoyed her time with Trish and the others. What is less recognised is the help to me, the main carer. Many thanks and best wishes."

Pam Anderson

"I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your help. Your volunteers Jean, Gavin and Isobel were very caring and helpful to Mum. Many Thanks."

Some Words From Fiona

Since taking over as co-ordinator 13 years ago, I have been so lucky to have had the support of our volunteers.

Some want to do patient transport, some befriending and some just help out at fund raising events.We have no restrictions as to what you can or cannot do. It is what suits you that counts.

We get together several times a year at the coffee morning fund raiser, AGM and our always enjoyable tea and scones afternoon where we have the opportunity of meeting other like minded individuals. We are after all a team.

It is a pleasure to work with you all and I am delighted to have this opportunity of expressing my sincere " thank you" for your invaluable assistance, without which we would not exist.

Fiona (Co-ordinator)
