Patient transport services 

Most people who have a hospital appointment make their own way there but, for some, this is not possible. In some cases, people may be able to use the NHS Patient Transport Service to get to and from hospital.

In Eastern Cheshire (which includes Macclesfield, Congleton and Knutsford hospitals), the service is provided by West Midlands Ambulance Service and commissioned by NHS Eastern Cheshire Clinical Commissioning Group. 

This patient information leaflet (INSERT LINK) will tell you:

  • who can apply
  • who will decide if you are entitled
  • how to make a booking
  • what the service provides
  • who to contact for more information.
