You will be asked a number of questions to determine your eligibility for PTS, and to ensure we send the appropriate staff and vehicle.

Craig Browne, Cheshire East Council deputy leader and cabinet member with responsibility for strategic transport, said: “We have listened to representations made by local communities and ward members and have taken these steps to reintroduce these services.”
If you’re returning from hospital, we make sure you have everything you need for your first 24 to 72 hours back at home.
We may then provide up to 12 weeks of support depending on the level of help you need.
The Red Cross services are based around all the local hospitals. Our friendly, caring teams provide free, confidential and practical support to people in the first few weeks after discharge from hospital or after an illness. Staff and volunteers visit people in thier own homes to help them regain their confidence and get back to normal life. We can also offer support to carers who may need a few hours’ break to meet friends or go shopping.
