Hospital Transport Services are provided to help patients get to their hospital or clinic appointment. Patients who need ambulance transport will now book their transport to hospital directly through a Transport Booking Centre.
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 receive your appointment letter from the hospital you should contact the Transport Booking Centre on the freephone number - 0800 3282332.
The booking Centre is open from 08:30 to 18:00 Monday to Friday, but not on public holidays.
Remember - If your appointment is changed for any reason, please tell the Transport Booking Centre.
You will need to telephone the Transport Booking Centre at least one week before you are due to attend. The Booking Centre will not take bookings more than 3 months in advance.
If you are eligible for transport, it will be booked for you and you will be given a booking number. Please make a note of this number as you will need it if you have any queries.
