Hospital Transport Services
Free phone number: 0800

This service is provided to help certain patients get to their
hospital or clinic appointment. Patients who need ambulance
transport to attend their appointment can now book their
transport to hospital through a Transport Booking Centre. Please
note that this is a separate service to the emergency ambulance
service; if you need an ambulance for a medical emergency you
should always phone 999.
When you ring you will be given a booking reference number,
which you will need if you have any queries. Be prepared to give
the following details: Name, address, phone number, NHS number /
hospital number, name of hospital, clinic or treatment centre you
will be attending and the date and time of your
appointment. Call at least 1 week and not more than 3
months before the date of your hospital appointment; if you are
eligible for transport, it will be booked for you and you will be
given a booking number, which you will need if you have any queries
at a later date.
If you have been sent an urgent appointment and are unable to
give at least 1 weeks notice, please ring as soon as possible and
if you are eligible every effort will be made to try and arrange
transport for you.
