Hospital Transport:

Some hospitals arrange transport to pick up and return patients to our facilities to attend appointments or treatment while staying with us.

The Ivanhoe Homes does not organise and is not responsible for patient transport.  This is organised by the treating hospital and if needed can often be organised by your hospital social worker.
