The non-emergency positions will help with St John�s patient transport service and require as little as four to eight hours a week commitment, with no weekends.

Volunteer member services manager Kate Fina said the new roles were also physically less demanding.

�The priority for these roles is to provide companionship and in-transit care to low-acuity patients, rather than the clinical know-how,� she said.

Volunteers will receive advanced first-aid training, with the opportunity for further education. Visit www.stjohnchangelives.com.au or call 1800 069 393.
