DO YOU NEED HELP GETTING TO/FROM MEDICAL APPOINTMENTS? 

THE ESHER & CLAYGATE CAR SERVICE CAN HELP YOU

It is a charity that provides transport for residents in Esher & Claygate who have difficulty getting to medical appointments such as GPs, dentists, opticians, physiotherapists and some local hospitals.

Its volunteer drivers collect clients from their homes, drive them to their appointments, wait and then take them home for a donation of £3 for journeys within Esher or Claygate and £5 for further afield.

All volunteer drivers have DBS certificates and have provided satisfactory references.

TO BOOK A CAR Either ask your surgery to do it for you or ring the Car Service’s mobile, 07501 029237, on weekdays, If no-one answers, leave a message and your call will be returned as soon as possible. A couple of days’ notice is required and wheelchairs cannot be taken.

NEW VOLUNTEERS NEEDED At the moment more drivers who live in Esher are needed so, if you are looking for a rewarding way to support your community and can spare a few hours a month (at times to suit yourself), how about joining the team? You can choose to only drive in term time to fit in with childcare. Contact Margie Richardson for further details on 07804 214832 or email ec.carservice@gmail.com
