Type of service:
Advice And Support
Daventry Area Community Transport,
Eligibility: Those who have difficulty using public transport to get to any medical appointments.
Our drivers will take passengers to wherever their appointment may be. Although most appointments will be for GP Practices/Hospitals in Northamptonshire our drivers also travel on a regular basis to hospitals in other counties, such as Oxford, Birmingham, Coventry and sometimes even to London.
Our drivers are all volunteers and use their own cars. So, although they are not paid for their services we do levy a small charge for all car journeys, to cover the cost of fuel and general wear and tear of their vehicles. Please phone for advice on the cost of your particular journey.
Typically drivers will pick you up in good time to meet your appointment time. You will be dropped off as close as possible to the required address/department. The driver will provide wheelchair assistance where required. As a guideline the driver will wait on-site or close by until you are ready to return home, unless the waiting time is likely to be for a prolonged period.
All our volunteer drivers are dedicated to ensuring that our passengers are given whatever support they need to make their trips as free of stress as possible.
