If you need help getting to an appointment at the Health Centre or Hospital, contact us as soon as you can. Our drivers need as much notice as possible as they are busy volunteers and are often booked up weeks in advance.
We will ask you many questions, so please be patient with us as it is important for us to know how mobile you are and whether you have any medical conditions we should be aware of. We will check if you are taking a friend along to your appointment and will usually also ask for an emergency contact name and phone number in case for any reason you become unwell while you are with us.
We will record details of your appointment, date, time and department if it is a hospital and take a number to contact you. We will then try to contact our volunteer drivers to see if one of them is able to take you.
When we have found a driver for you we will let you know their name and the time that they will pick you up.
We ask for a contribution to cover the drivers' expenses, your driver will have a small brown envelope in the car for you to put your donation in. Suggested donations for different destinations are shown below. The drivers are usually happy to wait while you are at your appointment and bring you home again, but if your appointment takes a very long time, then the driver may not be able to wait and may need to make two trips to the hospital so the expected donation will be greater. Feel free to ask when you request your trip.
All are drivers have been DBS checked to make sure that they are safe to work with vulnerable groups.
