The Friends of Underhill Surgery offer a service to Lympstone residents who are registered at the Claremont practice through which we provide transport to and from appointments at the surgery or at local (Exmouth & Exeter) hospitals. In addition, the service is available to deliver medicines to the patient’s home.

You can join the scheme for a cost of just £5 per year and then charges for transport are as follows:

To Exeter hospitals (return) £12.00 (plus car parking if applicable)
Double journey over 2 hrs £24.00
To Exmouth hospital (return) £6.00 (plus car parking if applicable)
Village journeys (to/from surgery) £3.00
Village journeys (medicine delivery) £2.00
