OUR SERVICES:

 

THE PATIENT TRANSPORT SERVICE

 

WHAT IS IT?

This service is provided to convey patients to any medically associated appointments i.e. the Health Centre, Dentists, Opticians, Chiropodists etc.  The hospitals in Kingsbridge, Plymouth and Torbay are also included within this service.

 

HOW DO I BOOK A DRIVE?

Our coordinators work from an office in the Health Centre between 10.00am and 12 noon from Monday to Friday. Outside of those hours messages can be left on the answering machine and will be dealt with during the next working day. Just call with the details of your appointment and they will find a driver for you.  It is, however, important that you give as much notice as possible, ideally two working days.  If your need is urgent the coordinators will do their best to help but they cannot guarantee that a car will be available for you.   The number to call is 01548 581181.

 

WHAT DOES IT COST?

There is no set charge; we ask only for a donation.

 

CAN YOU HELP?

There is always a requirement for more volunteer drivers.  This is a vital service in our rural community and we rely heavily on our drivers to keep the Patient Transport Service going.  They give freely of their time but are able to claim mileage expenses.  This is a most rewarding activity and those who participate, are only expected to do as much or as little as they choose.

If you feel that you would like to join us please ring 01548 581181 for more information.

 

FINANCIAL MATTERS

Fund raising is an important part of our Charity.  The proceeds raised, not only purchase medical equipment for the health centre, but also help pay for the maintenance of that equipment.  They also go towards subsidising the Patient Transport Service.

 

We are also the grateful recipients of personal donations and bequests as well as being in receipt of donations by regular contributors. If you feel that you would like to become a regular donor please ring our Treasurer, Les Cowley, on 01548 581264 or pick up our leaflet at the Health Centre which contains a form for either a single or regular donations.
