Healthcare Travel Costs Scheme

Did you know that patients and carers on low incomes can reclaim their travel costs for attending hospital appointments?

If you’re a patient or carer who receives benefits or is on a low income, you may be eligible to claim back the cost of travelling to specialist healthcare appointments by public transport or car.

You can submit your claim up to three months after the appointment date. Patients of the Royal Berkshire Foundation Trust can find further information is available on their patient leaflet or on the NHS Healthcare Travel Costs Scheme website.
