TRANSPORT TO THE HOSPITAL

Patient transport has changed recently so if you are booking transport for a hospital appointment then it is likely you will be asked a number of questions to see if you qualify for patient transport.

Once you have answered these questions if you are unhappy with the outcome we would suggest that you contact PALS (The Patient Advice and Liason Service) on Freephone 08000320202.
