Hospital transfer service axed over lack of funds


There was widespread concern on the island this week that a vital hospital transport service, operated by the Red Cross, is to be axed.

The charity has confirmed that it is to end its transfer service at the end of the month because, it says, it costs more to run than to pay for a taxi for every patient.

The service has been running since 2003 and has helped hundreds of people complete thousands of journeys to hospital appointments on the mainland. It remains available until next Thursday.
