There are many voluntary organisations who can help transporting patients to the surgery.
Please give them a call and they will explain what service they are able to offer and when. It is possible that you may have to pay for some or all of the following services.
If you or your carer are finding it difficult to travel, getting to appointments or visiting someone, this can be a real concern. Transport for you and the person you care for can sometimes be arranged by Adult Social Services so that you can get to the services they provide. There are several voluntary community car schemes that provide transport for people attending appointments.
Depending on your circumstances you may be entitled to claim travel costs to hospital.
