PARKING AND TRANSPORT TO THE SURGERY
Parking at the practice is limited, so staff and patients who live near enough are encouraged to walk or cycle to the practice.
Public transport is limited in this area but we try and encourage patients and staff to use public transport when it is possible.
Please click the links for information about the local services who provide public transport into Bellingham.
For times and fares for Bellingham, Wark and other villages to Hexham please use this link.
For travel between Byrness, Rochester, Otterburn, East, West Woodburn and Bellingham the new shared taxi service has replaced the old 815 bus service and still operates every Friday (except public holidays) to arrive in Bellingham between 10am and returning in the middle of the day (allowing two hours).
Normal bus fares apply and concessionary bus passes can still be used.
This taxi service must be booked at least one day in advance of travel and will pick you up from your home
Please call 01434 220570 to register and thereafter reserve your seat each time you intend to travel.
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.
