Forest Row Volunteer Medical Transport Scheme

Description

Forest Row Volunteer Medical Transport Scheme offers clients lifts from their home to hospital, doctors, dentists, and physio appointments.

The service is available for patients at Ashdown Forest Health Centre and/or residents of Forest Row Parish and Ashurst Wood to enable them to attend medical/dental appointments, essentially covering most of Sussex, Surrey and Kent.

One of our DBS checked volunteer drivers will pick you up from your home and take you to your appointment, they will wait for you and then return you to your home. 

The charge for this service will be 45p per mile which will be worked out accurately by your driver. There will also be a £1 administration charge to cover the cost of stationery and telephone charges. There is a minimum charge of £3 to cover the drivers time and costs. You can also leave an additional voluntary donation to help the scheme sustain itself in the longer term.

If the driver is expected to wait for the client for more than 2 hours you will be charged for two journeys.
