Patient Transport Information Leaflet

What is NHS Funded Patient Transport?

Patients travelling to NHS non-emergency healthcare are normally expected to make their own way, using their own transport or the range of public, community or voluntary transport available locally.

Some patients may be eligible for NHS funded patient transport on health grounds if they meet the criteria for support or assistance on or after the journey.

Eligibility criteria are in place to ensure that those with a genuine need have access to the services they require.

A person’s eligibility for NHS funded patient transport will be assessed against medical or financial eligibility criteria. This will ensure that all patients are treated fairly.

Who can use NHS Funded Patient Transport?

Patients are eligible when they meet the criteria at the time of booking and the journey. This does not include social reasons for transport (such as being unable to afford a journey or not having access to a bus or car).
