I’ve had two different types of transport to take me to the BRI for my appointments at the heart clinic. Whilst they are both very helpful, I’d find it very difficult to get to the hospital under my own steam, I must say the ambulance drivers give a great service. They come to the door to help me get from my house to the ambulance and make sure I am safely in the house when they bring me back. Sometimes I have a taxi sent to pick me up, the drivers are very pleasant people but they don’t get out of the car to help me from my house to the car. It would be so lovely if the taxi drivers could do this as it can be a struggle, if people worse off than me are also being taken to hospital in a taxi it must be very difficult for them.
