Surgery Car Run Service

Filkins & Broughton Poggs Volunteer Doctor and Hospital Car Rota

For many years the village has operated a volunteer car rota for those who live in Filkins or Broughton Poggs and who need transport to attend to either a Doctors or Hospital appointment. We cover the major hospitals, including all the Oxford hospitals and the Great Western in Swindon, as well as all the local surgeries. There is a charge for the service to cover petrol and any parking charges.

To use the service please contact Theo Hodges on 07711 066155 and she will put you in touch with a driver. If Theo is unavailable for any reason then please contact Freda Shrouder on 07557 048667 / 01367 80053 or Charlie Payne on 07810 158558 / 01367 860529.

If you would like to join our team of drivers please contact Theo, Freda or Charlie as above. It only works out at three or four trips a year and makes a huge difference to our community given our remoteness from the major hospitals.
