The Red Cross has started a transport service for those physically unable to use public transport or financially unable to visit a doctor or meet with EQC staff.
The service, which requires a referral from a community organisation or similar, can also be used to enable the resident to participate in social or community events.
Trips are booked 48 hours beforehand.
For further information telephone 0800 468 8731 or visit this webpage to download the referral form
