Painful Journeys Campaign

Local older people asked to share stories of stressful hospital journeys


Healthwatch Shropshire, the local healthcare consumer champion, and Age UK Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin are asking older people from Shropshire to share details of the difficulty they have in getting to and from hospital appointments.


The ‘Painful Journeys’ campaign, which has been launched by Age UK, seeks to highlight the long, uncomfortable and often painful journeys that many older people have to endure when they are unwell, in order to have treatment or consultations. It calls for an urgent government review of essential transport services.


To share your experience of a painful or difficult journey to hospital please call Healthwatch Shropshire on 01743 237884 or go to


For more information about local transport options for older people in Shropshire please contact Age UK Shropshire Telford & Wrekin on 01743 233123.
