Patients needing transport to doctors’ surgeries in the Uckfield area could benefit from a scheme being investigated by the Wealden Bus Alliance.
The alliance is led by Barry Marlowe, who lives at Buxted, and represents Hailsham on Wealden District Council.
He hopes to get a car service established for all surgeries in the town.
Uckfield town councillors were told by Cllr Paul Sparks it would not compete with the established Manor Park and Hempstead Fields Residents’ Association scheme.
Mr Marlowe aims to develop a service for other areas of Uckfield and surrounding villages.
He is now recruiting drivers.
The bus alliance is also conducting a survey into the transport needs of patients. A deadline for taking part has been extended to Friday, August 15.
The survey is open to everyone who attends the surgeries at Bird-in-Eye and Meads in Uckfield and surgeries in Buxted and East Hoathly. It can be found on the Wealden Bus Alliance website.
