Travelling to hospital and health appointments

Travelling to hospital and health appointments

For information on how you can travel to and from the hospitals in Devon, as well as advice on how to choose the best transport option for you, see our Transport Advice for Patients Leaflet.

There is also lots of helpful information on the Patient Transport Information pages of the NHS Website.

Community transport

You may find one of the Community Transport schemes operating across the county can help you access health appointments. These are agencies in the voluntary sector that provide local knowledge and expertise on transport needs and travel options, including help with booking transport for medical appointments. Visit our Community Transport pages to find out more.

Getting help with travel costs

You may be able to get help with your travel costs to attend hospital appointments under the Healthcare Travel Costs Scheme (HTCS) or the NHS Low Income Scheme.

Visit the NHS Choices website for further information about eligibility and how to claim.
