Wonderful drive

Pauline rang our office and cited a wonderful drive with Tina. Was impressed with Tina’s enthusiasm for GMT volunteers and service.

Pauline has now decided she would like to be actively involved with the lovely friendly GMT Volunteers. She is going to join the fund raising group as she does not want to drive, she enjoyed being driven by GMT.

Support for Hero Award

I am writing in support for Gympie Medical Transport's nomination for the Australia Pacific LNG Community Hero Award.

Gympie Medical Transport provide an essential service to the residents in the Gympie region at an affordable rate due to the number of volunteers that provide their time to this organisation.

I am pleased to offer my support of the nomination for Gympie Medical Transport.

Support for award nomination

We would like to support the nomination of Gympie Medical Transport (GMT) for the Queensland Community Achievement Awards.

Gympie is an elderly community, that has to rely on other family members to transport them for medical appointments out of this region. There is limited transport to Brisbane via rail and Sunshine Coast has none, so private transfer is really the only option for Gympie people.

We have limited family availability to drive us to and from appointments and this sometimes involves an upheaval to their family life.

The only option available is the taxi service at a cost of $350 for a one way trip from Gympie to Sunshine Coast University Hospital.

Since we have become clients of GMT, we have found our stress level have lowered, as we don’t have to worry about getting to and from our medical appointments outside of Gympie.

"The booking process is very easy, I just have to ring and talk to the wonderful volunteers, who make a booking for you and its done. No need for any IT knowledge, just ring and talk……wonderful.”

All the volunteer drivers are so wonderful. They arrive at the time allocated, are friendly and very helpful, certainly making the trip as enjoyable as possible. They assist you into your appointment area and then return once your appointment is finished and drive you home to your front door.

The service that is now available by GMT to the Gympie community is a God send. It is a safe and reliable, and is managed by commitment and caring volunteers.

All these volunteers contribute beautifully to this community.

Council unhesitantly provide support

I refer to your nomination for the Queensland Community Achievement Awards which I unhesitantly provide my full support.

The Council has supported this great initiative providing them a vacant council owned building for this vital service.

The establishment of the Gympie Medical Transport Centre now provides certainty for community members to attend non-emergent medical appointments outside of the region where there are no public transport options, or the cost of travel is prohibitive.

Given the positive impact on the community and wider region that the Gympie Medical Transport has provided, I trust you will consider their nomination favourably.
