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 MacMillan 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 forty years experience, striving to cater to the needs of those who require reliable transportation to and from health related or any associated social appointments.

"I just want to saw a huge thankyou to you for the service being provided for a couple in sheltered housing in Cupar, Mr and Mrs C. They are absolutely delighted with being able to get out and about, to meet a relative and for the husband to get to medical treatments. I just wanted to say how impressed I have been and pass on my thanks!!"

"I want to thank you most sincerely for your kindness in arranging all the different lifts between Newport, Tayport and my aunt's home- it took a tremendous pressure off me trying to organise people twice a week for a 95 year old who demands punctuality at all times. Your volunteers were always on time and unfailingly polite and kind- would you be kind enough to thank them on our behalf. I think she'll miss their chat!"

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 has been a pleasure to work with you all and I am delighted to have had this opportunity of expressing my sincere " thank you" for your invaluable assistance, without which the organisation would not exist.

Fiona (Ex Co-ordinator)
