What Our Customers Say...

Philip Blackman Non-Clinical Manager, Oncology & Haematology at Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust

During long period of absence from our substantive driver, Drive Personnel have provided an excellent service and trained additional drivers, allowing us to maintain our cancer service.

Various times Drive Personnel have provided drivers with less than 24 hrs notice. They have moved their schedules around in order to accommodate, by avoiding the NHS having to pull the service, up to 25 patients per day can benefit from this.

Great agency, very accommodating, friendly & helpful.
