Help with travel costs
Hospital Travel costs scheme
In February 2023 Transport For London (TFL) announced that Freedom Pass holders over 60 can no longer use the pass to travel before 9am.
If you have a Freedom Pass you can request to have an appointment after 10am to help with the cost of travel.
The trust operates the hospital travel costs scheme which provides financial assistance to hospital patients who do not need an ambulance but who require assistance with their travel costs.
Patients on low incomes or in receipt of specific qualifying benefits or allowances are reimbursed in part, or in full, for costs incurred travelling to and from their hospital appointment.
Details can be obtained from the cashiers' office on the lower ground floor.
Further information about travel costs can be found on the NHS Choices website.
