Please click the following link for information about the Volunteer Car Scheme in Northampton.
Community transport to medically related appointments, for elderly & disabled people living in the Borough of Northampton or Grange Park and who are unable to use public transport.
The scheme also offers transport to other services such as well-being groups (e.g. illness prevention exercises, support groups, carers groups, specific medical illness groups including Alzheimer's, Dementia, Parkinson's etc)
Drivers volunteer Monday - Friday 8am -5pm.
In addition to an annual membership fee, there is typically a 'per journey' cost. Some schemes accept concessionary bus passes to cover the 'per journey' cost. There is likely to be a minimum charge.
Patient transport services are for individuals who have a medical condition that prevents them from getting to their appointment. East Midlands Ambulance Service (EMAS) will determine patient eligibility for access to this service following a short confidential telephone assessment. Booking line: 0300 300 3434. Individuals with a hearing impairment can contact the service by dialling 18001.
