Due to the need to keep people physically distanced we will be limiting the numbers we can transport at any given time. Please bear with us as this may mean that things take a little bit longer. The vans will be regularly cleaned and sanitised and records will be kept of those who use the vehicles.
If you have any symptoms of COVID-19 please do not use the vans, phone your G.P. or Healthline 0800 358 5453 for advice.
