Modbury Caring provides and manages a car service that offers transport for people, enabling them to attend health-related appointments (doctor, dentist, optician, hospital, etc.). If you have no car, are unable to drive or have problems getting to your appointment, consider using our Car Service.
Our drivers are all volunteers, who use their own cars and receive expenses for their fuel etc. Each has been DBS checked to ensure they have nothing in their past that might indicate their unsuitability for this role. We also provide a Prescription Delivery Service for those unable to collect their repeat prescriptions.
The service is free, but we invite users to make a contribution towards costs. Suggested donations are:
£3 – £6 to the Health Centre and South Hams Hospital
£22 for longer journeys to Derriford or Torbay Hospitals
To book transport, please telephone
Bill Cole on 01548 830913 OR Sue Rogers on 01548 831289 OR Jeff Booth on 01548 830274
We are always on the lookout for people to join our volunteer team, if you have some spare time and can help by becoming a befriender or by using your car to drive others to their medical appointments (we offer a mileage allowance to cover your costs), please contact us using our volunteer contact form.
