Garry Stead hands over new Courtesy Green Bus to the Northern General Hospital
Sheffield Teaching Hospitals in partnership with the League of Friends charity are now providing a new courtesy bus service to help patients and visitors get around the Northern General Hospital site.
Garry Stead, ex international speedway driver, will be coming to mark the official handover of the environmentally friendly bus from the charity to the Hospital.
Kevin O’Regan, Director of Operations at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, said: “Our new bus, that is also fully enabled for disabled access, will help the Trust ensure that a reliable and friendly transportation service is provided to the patients and visitors to the NGH site daily. This service is extremely valuable to the elderly, ill and the generally less mobile. It also acts as a valuable link between public transport routes and the main access points around the NGH site.”
The new vehicle demonstrates the Trust’s commitment to the global sustainability agenda as it is an electric mini bus that produces zero levels of CO2 emissions, all of which is positive for the environment and the level of air pollution in Sheffield.
