The Transport to Healthcare Information Centre (THInC) provide practical transport advice for people who have difficulty getting to and from medical appointments in Grampian.

The service provides a dedicated telephone service offering guidance on accessing suitable transport options to get to and from appointments when they have no means of personal transport. The centre can provide details of suitable bus or train times, contact telephone numbers and other services such as local dial-a-bus or voluntary car schemes.

The centre is the first of its kind in the UK and is a joint initiative between Aberdeen City Council, Aberdeenshire Council, Moray Council, NHS Grampian, The Scottish Ambulance Service and Nestrans. THInC is one of the projects taken forward as part of the Health and Transport Action Plan.

Please call THInC on 01467 536111 between 9am and 4pm, Monday to Friday. Calls are charged at local rate.
