Unpaid Carer Support

1 in 10 people in Scotland provide care and support to a family member, friend or neighbour to enable that person to continue to live in their own community.

Transport to Your Appointment

Do you need advice about travelling to and from your medical appointment?

Call THInC on 01343 567839 between 9am-4pm, Monday to Friday. Calls are charged at local rate.

The Transport to Healthcare Information Centre (THInC) can help. They provide practical transport advice for people who have difficulty getting to and from medical appointments in Grampian.

The service provides a dedicated telephone service offering guidance on accessing suitable transport options to get to and from appointments when they have no means of personal transport. The centre can provide details of suitable bus or train times, contact telephone numbers and other services such as local dial-a-bus or voluntary car schemes.

Please note that THInC does not book transport but can assist with travel advice.
