Travel Escorts

Shetland NHS Board

Improvements to our Patient Escort process

As of 1st September 2017, if patients require an escort, and they are in receipt of Higher Level Disability Living Allowance (mobility or care component) or Enhanced Personal Independence payment they will automatically be entitled to an escort upon production of a current award letter when booking their travel.  This means they will no longer have to obtain autherisation from a GP or clinician.

For those that this does not apply to, but medical circumstances suggest an escort is required, the patient or their carer will need to complete a form to rquest an escort and submit this to their GP practice for consideration.  This can be completed at the surgery and handed in or filled in electronically through our website.
