Hospital transport information

If you or a family member need to attend a hospital appointment you may be eligible for the Patient Transport Service or the Healthcare Travel Costs Scheme.

If you are not eligible for either of these, there are other transport options

Patient Transport Service

See our Changes to the Patient Transport Service (PDF) for more information.

Healthcare Travel Costs Scheme

The Healthcare Travel Costs scheme provides financial assistance to those patients who do not have a medical need for ambulance transport but who require assistance with their travel costs.

Patients on low incomes or receiving qualifying benefits or allowances (such as Income support and Job Seekers Allowance) are reimbursed in part or in full for their travel expenses. For more information, please see Healthcare Travel Costs Scheme on the NHS website.
