Portlethen and District Voluntary Community Ambulance Association


The Community Ambulance has been operating in Portlethen, Newtonhill and surrounding area since 1982, with the primary function of transporting elderly and disabled people to and from their appointments at Portlethen Medical Centre and Portlethen Dental Practice.

In June 2001, the Community Ambulance obtained charitable status and in 2002 were proud to receive the Queens Golden Jubilee Award for Voluntary Service in the Community.

The service is provided each weekday and is free to users. They mainly transport elderly and disabled people living in the Portlethen, Newtonhill, Chapelton, Muchalls and surrounding area to and from their appointments at the Medical Centre and Dental Practice in Portlethen. The transport service is booked directly with the receptionists at the Medical Centre and Dental Practice, usually at the same time as a person is booking an appointment.

The Community Ambulance is also utilised to transport members to and from their weekly Senior Citizens Lunch Clubs, in Portlethen and Newtonhill.

On Sunday mornings the Ambulance is used by Portlethen Parish Church to transport members of the congregation who have transport or mobility problems.

The Ambulance can be available for use by local groups. Portlethen Guides regularly use the vehicle for outings in the evenings.

If you require more information on the out of hours availability, contact the Rota Co-ordinator Hugh Wheelan on 07834 559547.
