The process for requesting a driver for transport to and from appointments has changed.

Bookings should now be made directly through Friends of Fairford & Lechlade Communities. You no longer need to request a driver through either Hilary Cottage or Lechlade Medical Centre receptionists.

If you require transport to and from your hospital/doctor/dental appointments please contact Friends of Fairford & Lechlade Communities directly through the following methods:

Telephone: Between 10.00-13.00hrs Monday-Friday: 07540 798226. If the line is busy you will be able to leave a message and a member of the patient transport team will call you back.


A charge for the round trip is made for the service to cover running costs of the vehicle. No charge is made for the driver.

The schedule of fixed rate charges are shown here Fixed Rate Fare Charges

More drivers are always needed so if you are able to help please contact us.

We rely on donations and fund-raising activities by well-wishers. If you would like to help, please contact us.
