Bath Community Transport have mini buses available to help organisations resolve transportation difficulties during this time, whether this is transporting key workers that have no alternative transportation, patient transportation or delivering emergency food parcels to the at risk groups or supporting food banks.
We anticipate in the coming weeks we will be supporting hospitals to get discharged patients home, if the numbers become too much for existing providers to handle, therefore we are unable to specify how long we can support in these other areas.

Hi my name is Wendi. I am socially isolating as I have 8 medical conditions.

I’d like to offer my phone number for people to call me with concerns, worries etc to anyone in the community that may need it.
