Voluntary Transport Scheme / Kings Bromley Medical Transport


Voluntary Transport Scheme / Kings Bromley Medical Transport

Published 14 March 2019

As part of their austerity measures, Staffordshire County Council will discontinue support for this scheme from 31st March. The scheme exists to enable parishioners to attend health centre or hospital visits where public transport cannot be used due to disability or inappropriate timetabling. The Parish Council believe this is an essential service and have decided to take over its support. Users will see no difference in the scheme, they will ring Jane Pollard on 473151 and she will arrange for a volunteer driver to transport them. Volunteer drivers will see a simplified set of rates for the journeys. To make it clear what the scheme is and does it will be renamed Kings Bromley Medical Transport. The Parish Council wishes to thank Jane for continuing to run the scheme, which she has done calmly and efficiently for around 25 years.

Jane has a pool of seven volunteer drivers which is barely enough. If you would like to volunteer your services please get in contact with Jane.
