Other Options

If you’re registered - you can use Ring and Ride to visit patients in certain hospitals. Ring and Ride can't be used for journeys which can be made by ambulance.

At some hospitals, volunteers provide transport for visitors who can't use public transport. Ask at the General Office of your hospital for more information.

You may be able to get help with your travelling expenses when you go into hospital for NHS treatment and when you come out of hospital, or when you go to and from hospital as an outpatient for NHS treatment.

If you need someone to travel with you, you can get help with the cost of their fares. See the leaflet Help with Health Costs, which is available free from your Social Security Office, Post Office, Jobcentre Plus or NHS Hospital.

Telephone the Health Cost Advice Line on 0845 850 1166 or visit the DirectGov website.
