The car service is managed through a coordinator, Requests for transport are made to the co-ordintor, giving as much notice as possible, who then arranges for a voluntary driver to carry out the journey.
Please ring your office co-ordinator and we will be happy to quote for any journey. When you phone to request transport, we will be able to tell you approximately how much your journey will cost
Our drivers carry an IDENTITY CARD, which has their photograph on it - always ask to see this card. If the driver cannot produce his Identity Card, then phone the coordinator for advice.
The cost is 50 pence per mile. If on income support you can claim money from the hospital but if the money paid by the hospital is not the full amount you must make up the difference at 50 pence per mile.
