Patient transport - Queen Mary's Hospital

AddressRoehampton Lane,
London
PostcodeSW15 5PN
DescriptionIf you have a medical condition that makes it impossible to travel to and from hospital by any other means, you may be eligible for hospital transport. You may also receive help with fares or other travel expenses for yourself and anyone who needs to travel with you if you are incapable of getting to hospital on your own. You can also get help if you need to accompany a child.

Eligibility for this service is determined by a qualified healthcare professional such as a doctor, nurse, midwife or senior therapist working in the NHS. If they decide that you do qualify for patient transport, then your GP will need to specify this when you are first referred to the hospital.

For further information see the contact details below.

EligibilityPatients who receive certain benefits or allowances can request to have transport costs reimbursed. These include Income Support, Income-based Job Seekers' Allowance, Pension Credit Guarantee Credit, Child's Tax Credit, Working Tax Credit with Child's Tax Credit, Working Tax Credit with a disability element, or the NHS Low Income Scheme.

If one or more of these applies to you, you will need to complete a travel expense claim form which is available from all clinics and departments, and which needs to be signed by the clinic. You then need to take the signed form to the Cashier, who will countersign it and provide you with petty cash to cover the costs.
