This policy has been developed by a team of professionals drawn from East Lothian Council (ELC), East Lothian Health and Social Care Partnership (ELHSCP) and Local Area Partnerships. They have reviewed all current policy in relation to transport to social care resources and examined good practice models from other local authority areas. This revised policy draft aims to support sustainable transport provision and procedures for the efficient administration of health and social care transport.

Why We Are Consulting

The draft policy seeks to:
•ensure that transport is provided in a fair and equitable way
•reduce dependency and maximise the travel options available to service users to support their independence and inclusion
•provide clarity on the circumstance in which transport will be provided, arranged or subsidised for service users.

We want your views on whether it achieves this. See related documents to view Draft Policy
