Patient Transport

Patient Transport

Getting home from hospital

We do not normally provide transport to take inpatients home once you are well enough to be discharged.

However, elderly and vulnerable patients may be eligible for transport. This must be agreed by the medical team and booked before your discharge.

Transport will not normally be provided for anyone who lives within six miles of the hospital and who is under the age of 65, unless you meet the eligibility criteria. This also applies to follow up appointments. Please speak to the ward manager or clinic manager if you are unsure.
