sedcat offers a weekday wheelchair-accessible shuttle service which can take you to a one-off hospital appointment at Bournemouth or Christchurch Hospitals without incurring the membership fee. We regret that this service does not currently cover Poole Hospital.
Usually only available to those residents in postcode areas BH1 – BH11, during the COVID-19 lockdown period, the service has been extended to areas within Bournemouth, Poole, Christchurch, Ferndown, West Moors, West Parley, Wimborne to help those who are struggling to get appropriate transport. Our MPV has a sealed partition between passenger and driver to allow for social distancing and driver has PPE.
We offer the Hospital Hop wheelchair-accessible shuttle service for a return fare cost of £10 (£12 outside of BH1 – BH11 post codes). Bookings must be made at least 24 hours in advance and paid by credit or debit card by telephoning 01202 534027.
Some costs may be refundable by the NHS; for more information about help with healthcare costs call 0300 330 1343.
Poole Survey – we need your feedback on how easy is it to get to hospital
We are currently running a survey for Poole residents to find out what problems are experienced when trying to get to hospital appointments. Can you help us gather evidence by completing the survey here? Thank you, this evidence is important to development of new services.
