Free Patient Transport

Our free patient transport Scheme continues to provide transport for any cancer patients in the County Durham and Darlington area attending hospitals for cancer treatment. All of our drivers are volunteers and each have had relevant checks carried out, and have been issued with ID badges and parking permits. As they use their own vehicle we retain a copy of their insurance, MOT certificate and drivers licence so patients can be assured that they are in safe hands.
Hazel Williams is currently our Patient Transport Co-ordinator, and Hazel will allocate your driver. You may not get the same driver every time you attend hospital, but we guarantee that you will get to your appointment on time and safely. The driver will usually stay with you throughout your hospital visit. You are also allowed to bring a carer or relative with you to provide you with their vital support.
Mileage allowances are paid to transport drivers from the group’s funds, however if you would like to make a small donation towards this cost, that would be okay. You can do this by speaking to Hazel in the first instance.
