Patient transport

Patients are normally required to make their own arrangements to travel to and from hospital.

However, there are certain exceptional circumstances in which the hospital is able to help. See below for details.

Help with travel costs

Patients who are in receipt of certain benefits – including certain tax credits, unemployment allowances and pension credits – are able to claim for help with travel costs. Please see the travel costs page for further details.

Non-emergency patient transport

The hospital may be able to provide non-emergency patient transport for patients with a particular medical condition which stops them using private or public transport. Please see our page on non-emergency patient transport for full details.
