Patient Transport

This link will take you to The Patient Transport page on NHS website

The Patient Transport Service takes patients who have a medical or mobility need to and from their pre-arranged hospital appointments, or for their admission and discharge to hospital.

Patients are normally picked up from their home and taken to and from their hospital appointment.

Do I qualify?
Having a healthcare appointment does not mean that you will automatically be provided with ambulance transport. This service is available for patients whose medical or mobility needs prevent them from travelling independently and who require the assistance of ambulance staff during the journey.
