If you are referred to hospital or another NHS Service such as Healthshare, you may be able to claim a refund of reasonable travel costs under the Healthcare Travel Costs Scheme (HTCS). Visit the NHS UK website to find out who is eligible for the scheme and how to make a claim using the HCT(T) Refund claim form.
