Travel Costs to See a Specialist

I am very fortunate in that I get to see a specialist once a year but I live in Cornwall and the specialist is in London. It costs me £130 in train fares to get to London and I was wondering if anyone knows of any grants or funding that I could apply for to help with the travel costs?

  • Hi Hannah - I am sorry we do not offer any grants or funding for travel costs. I don't know whether it might be worth asking at the Citizen's Advice Bureau if they know of any way to help? Fiona

  • Thanks, I'll give that a try

  • Hello Hannah,

    Have you mentioned this at the hospital concerned, they may be able to suggest a way of getting funding or organising the travel for you?

    Always worth a shot.
