Hospital health shuttles
Most health districts have health shuttles to transport patients to and from appointments at their facilities.
Contact your local district health service to find out:
- where their shuttle services run from, and when
- how to book a trip
- whether you can take someone with you, if needed
- if you need to pay a fare or a donation, or if it’s free.
- Or search your local district health website for patient/visitor information about hospital transport services.
