Central phone number to access non-emergency patient transport services in Devon. PTAS will take bookings from patients and NHS staff between 7.00am – 6.00pm, Monday to Friday (except bank holidays). The service is funded by the CCG and provided by Devon County Council.
Patients are still encouraged to make their own way to NHS appointments wherever possible. However, if they are too unwell to travel by car, taxi, public transport, or community transport, they can contact the Devon Patient Transport Advice Service (PTAS) to see if they are eligible for non-emergency patient transport. Those who normally use the service and have already been assessed should also use this number. Eligibility is based on clinical need, not affordability.
