Getting residents to their vaccination appointment

Asking for help to get to an appointment

Please consider whether you have a family member, neighbour or other transport option who can get you to your appointment or if you can use public transport.

Buckinghamshire Council residents will be able to use their concessionary bus pass to travel to a vaccination appointment at any time of the day

If not, please let your GP Practice know you need transport when you are booking your appointment.

Your Practice will put you in touch with the appropriate community transport arrangement. Where there is no voluntary transport scheme in the area, patients who have ability to pay, will be signposted to Buckinghamshire Council approved taxi companies.

If you are an organisation who wants to volunteer transport

Organisations, both voluntary and non-voluntary, who can help by volunteering to drive residents to their vaccination appointments, should email Community Impact Bucks: [email protected]

We are using the Buckinghamshire Community Transport Hub scheme which is commissioned by Transport for Bucks and delivered by Community Impact Bucks. This will help us map all offers of help so we can pass this on to those booking the appointments.

Individuals who want to offer volunteer transport support

If you wish to offer support as a driver volunteer please register your details with the volunteering matching service on the Community Impact Bucks website.

Where possible, Community Impact Bucks will signpost the organisation(s) to local active community transport schemes who could benefit from their support.
