Strathcare ensures that current coronavirus safety guidelines set out by the Scottish Government and Perth and Kinross Council are met.
Bertie Bus is exclusively chauffeuring passengers to their hospital appointments – one at a time. The overriding concern is to protect our volunteers and passengers and at the same time reduce the risk of potential COVID-19 infection to a minimum. We have developed a process of ensuring everybody wears masks and gloves, the bus is scrupulously cleaned before and after every journey and our passenger, as we only take one at a time, is fully aware of any restrictions applying to the journey. We follow up their health status a couple of times after the hospital appointment. Since the start of the exercise it has been a success so far as we are out using Bertie usually once a week. All the passengers taken into hospital have very much appreciated the service and a huge thanks must go to the drivers who volunteer for these trips.
