Transport

Do you need advice about travelling to and from your medical appointment?

The Transport to Healthcare Information Centre (THInC) can help. They provide practical transport advice for people who have difficulty getting to and from medical appointments in Grampian.

The service provides a dedicated telephone service offering guidance on accessing suitable transport options to get to and from appointments when they have no means of personal transport. The centre can provide details of suitable bus or train times, contact telephone numbers and other services such as local dial-a-bus or voluntary car schemes.

The centre is the first of its kind in the UK and is a joint initiative between Aberdeen City Council, Aberdeenshire Council, NHS Grampian, The Scottish Ambulance Service and Nestrans.  It is also one of the projects taken forward as part of the Health and Transport Action Plan.

Please call THInC on 01467 536111 between 9am-4pm, Monday to Friday or email travel@thinc-hub.org.  Calls are charged at local rate.

Please note that THInC does not book transport but can assist with travel advice.

 

Ambulance Transport

Ambulance transport is available for patients who are unable to travel to healthcare appointments independently for medical/mobility reasons, and who need the support of the ambulance staff to get them there safely.

To request ambulance transport, please call the ambulance booking line, on: 0300 123 1236 (calls are charged at local rates for both landlines and mobiles).  You will be asked a series of questions about your condition and if appropriate your booking will then be confirmed.

Please call as soon as you are notified about your appointment at a hospital or clinic.   If you need to cancel your ambulance transport please call 08003 891 333.
