For many years the Friends of Burwash Surgery had a team of volunteers who, when requested by the surgery, drive patients to medical appointments. This service almost came to a stop from March 2020 as hospital appointments disappeared.

The good news is that hospital appointments are now up and running again however the number of drivers has reduced considerably due to many changes in their circumstances. As a result, this village service is going to be severely reduced unless we can find more volunteers. When we have a good number of drivers each volunteer may have only one trip a month – it’s the old adage, the more the merrier. Petrol costs can be claimed.
