HCS 1: Are you entitled to help with health costs?

Listen

PEOPLE LIVING IN THE COUNCIL AREAS OF HIGHLAND, ARGYLL & BUTE, WESTERN ISLES, ORKNEY AND SHETLAND

You get help with the cost of travel to hospital for NHS treatment, provided you have to travel at least 30 miles (48km), or more than 5 miles (8km) by sea, to get to hospital.

There is a set maximum you have to pay unless you get free travel, or help with the costs. Leaflet HCS2 tells you how much this is.
