The purpose of Cooloola Coast Medical Transport is to ensure that the frail, aged and/or disabled residents of Cooloola Coast have access to medical treatment by providing transport to health services at all locations between Hervey Bay in the north and Brisbane in the south.

It is designed to overcome the difficulty in obtaining transport to "out of town" medical appointments experienced by geographically and socially isolated people who require door to door transport service, which is outside the scope of the Queensland Ambulance Service guidelines and which cannot be supplied by other means of private or public transport.

Cooloola Coast Medical Transport is a totally volunteer organisation and although we will try our utmost to satisfy everyone's requirements, it is necessary to understand that our drivers are not medically trained and therefore cannot be expected to transport patients who are not fit to travel.

As volunteer drivers are donating their spare time, it is also necessary that procedures are followed to enable them enough time to be prepared and organised. Please understand that it is extremely difficult to organise a driver without sufficient notice.

Currently our drivers are only available Monday to Friday unless there is an extreme emergency on the weekend.

We hope this helps you to understand our service better so that we can continue to work together successfully for the benefit of all concerned.
