Redbridge Transport Action Group is the group of older and disabled transport users campaigning for more accessible transport. This month, we’ll focus on Sick of Waiting, the campaign for minimum standards in patient transport contracts. Come and discuss your experience of patient transport, and hear what you can do to support better patient transport in Redbridge. We’ll be inviting people from local hospitals and health organisations to speak and, more importantly, to listen. Even if you can’t make the meeting, we would still like to hear your views, so please do fill in our survey.

We’ll also have the latest updates on the ongoing campaign for a stepfree Crossrail, at Seven Kings and across the line. Refreshments will be provided.

This is an accessible venue, but should you have specific requirements, for example, speech–to–text or a signer, please contact Transport for All by 30th July.

Please let us know you are coming by calling Transport for All on 020 7737 2339.

I look forward to seeing you there.

Best wishes

Campaigns and Outreach Officer
