Patients are asked to travel as independently as possible to and from health care. The local Ottery Help Scheme may be able to provide you with transport to and from health care settings (a charge is usually made for this). The Help Scheme can be contacted on 01404 813041.
All bookings for non-emergency patient transport are taken by a central booking service known as the Patient Transport Advice Service (PTAS) who can be contacted on 0345 155 1009
Each patient will be assessed for eligibility before a booking is accepted.
The rules about which patients can relcaim their travel costs to NHS appointments have been updated. Further information and frequently asked questions are available at CCG web pages
