Public consultation regarding the cross Solent travel scheme currently funded by the IW council

Adult Social Care currently provides £60,000 per year to fund the cross Solent travel costs incurred by patients attending a mainland hospital for chemotherapy, radiotherapy or renal dialysis. This was a decision taken by Councillors seven years ago and it is entirely discretionary.

The Council is considering whether or not it should continue to fund this cross Solent travel scheme.

We would be very grateful if you would complete this short questionnaire. We value your experience, knowledge and comments of as someone who either has used the current scheme or as a member of the wider population who may possibly need to travel to the mainland for treatment in the future.

This consultation will run until the 23 December 2018.

This is an anonymous questionnaire and any comments will be reported in a way which protects the identity of the respondent.
