How do I organise transport to and from hospital?
If your reason for going to hospital is not an emergency, you'll normally be expected to make your own way there. However, some people are eligible for non-emergency patient transport services (PTS). In this area the service is provided by Yorkshire Ambulance Service. To find out if you are eligible and to find out more, visit the Patient Transport Service website.
You may be able to claim a refund for the cost of your transport to hospital through the Healthcare Travel Costs Scheme (HTCS). Visit Healthcare Travel Costs Scheme (HTCS) for more information on who is eligible, what the conditions are and how you can access the scheme.
For more information on all of the above visit the 'How do I organise transport to and from hospital?' page.
