Patients are asked to travel as independently as possible to and from health care, perhaps with the help of family, friends, carer and neighbours, public transport or taxi if own transport not available.
The local Ottery Help Scheme may be able to provide you with transport to and from healthcare settings (a charge is usually made for this). The Help Scheme can be contacted on 01404 813041.
Bus routes through Ottery are:
- 4 - Exeter - Honiton - Axminster

Details of local taxi firms can be found using your telephone directly/yellow pages or online using a search engine.
Advice on Supported Travel is available from your local SPoC (Single Point of Contact) on 01404 46529 (open week days only). If you cant use the telephone you could ask a friend, carer or family member to ring for you. As this service is limited, priority is given to vulnerable people in isolated and rural areas.
