When making a booking;

  • Give the CTS plenty of notice so they can arrange a driver for you (no less than 48 hours)
  • When making your specialist/hospital appointment book between 9am and 2.30pm. To allow time for the volunteer driver to take you to and from your appointment and return home at a reasonable hour.
  • If you are required to be in Newcastle for surgery before 9am, you will need to be driven to Newcastle the day before. Please inform your doctor so a bed can be assigned to you.
