If a patient is going to hospital for non-emergency tests or treatment, they are normally expected to make their own way there – or try and get a friend or relative to take them to hospital.
Some people who have a medical need can receive transport to and from hospital through non-emergency patient transport services (PTS) – but it is important this resource should only be made available to people with a genuine need and are deemed eligible.
