Hospital Car Transport
Booking Line 01749 880613

Hospital Car Transport was originally set up in 2005 within the Mendip District Council Area following the reorganisation of the Patient Transport Service by the NHS. The service provides transport for individuals to outpatients departments at Hospitals and other medical appointments outside of the Mendip District Council Area. The Service is operated by volunteer car drivers who offer their time freely and in return receive reimbursment of expenses in respect of the mileage they incur.
In October 2009 due to increasing demand the service was extended to include the Parishes of Cheddar and Axbridge. From September 2011 the scheme was extended further by including additional parishes within Sedgemoor.
