At the Tollerford Practice we are continually trying to improve our services to patients, we have found that transport does cause an issue for a number of our patients, especially those who live more rurally or are elderly. We have been selected to be part of a pilot scheme by Dorset Council where we can offer patients a door to door bus service to bring them to the surgery for specific clinics.
As this is a pilot scheme we have an eligibility criteria for those who can use the service:
• Over 75 years
• Has one of the following chronic diseases; Diabetes or Hypertension.
There will be a nominal fee of £3 for a return journey on this service.
If the pilot scheme is a success we will be able to offer the transport to the wider population so if you, or anyone you know, may be interested in this, please contact reception on 01308 861800 for more information.
