We have a pool of volunteers with their own cars to provide transport, and escort elderly patients to and from health and welfare appointments. A charge is made to cover costs.

Call 01737 370078 with at least 48 hours notice, and preferably at least a week 
(leave a message and we will get back to you)

If the answer phone is on please leave your name and number and we will return your call.

About Our Transport for Health Service

  • A driver will collect you from your home and drive you to the appointment
  • The driver waits for you, and when you come out of your appointment will then return you home.

  • If you would like a friend or relative to accompany you we can take an extra passenger

  • We can take wheelchairs

  • It is only available to clients who have no other way of getting to appointments.


What is the Cost?

We make a modest charge to cover our costs. You do not pay the driver directly, but wait for us to send you an invoice which you can either pay by cheque via the post, via telephone through the office using your credit/debit card, on-line or pop into the office.

We charge an annual service fee of £15. Fees for specific destinations depend on the distance that the driver travels calculated from the Banstead Centre. There is a minimum charge of £10. You will also need to pay any parking charges.
