Scottish Government: Transport Community to Help COVID-19 Sufferers, 12 April 2020

Plans to help people attend medical appointments. 

New arrangements are being put in place from the transport community to help people with suspected coronavirus (COVID-19) symptoms attend urgent but non-emergency medical appointments.

The Scottish Government and NHS Boards, with the support of Scotland’s business community, have been working to make vehicles and drivers available to COVID-19 symptomatic patients who are well enough to travel but do not have access to a car and are unable to use public transport to reach their local COVID-19 Community Assessment Centre.  

The new arrangements will meet social distancing guidelines, and to date, 100 Scottish businesses have offered to support the moving of people and goods.

The full report and statement by Health Secretary Jeane Freeman, can be found HERE.
