There are six bus stops on West Elloe Avenue, three each side of the road including two near the surgery, one just outside the surgery, and one the opposite side of the road next to the junction with Ladywood Road.
All stops offer raised kerbs to ease entry to and exit from vehicles, and several bus services run during regular surgery hours.
Buses which serve West Elloe Avenue regularly include 505, F1, it1, it2.
We try to keep a stock of current bus timetables at the surgery in our reception area, alternatively we have provided links to the relevant websites below where they are available.
The information provided was last checked 5th January 2011. We link directly to the transport provider website wherever possible. If there are any errors or out of date information, please let us know here and we will update links on our website as appropriate.
CallConnect is a bus service that operates only in response to pre-booked requests (on a ‘dial a bus’ basis). CallConnect will pick up and set down at designated locations in each village or town.
Most CallConnect services are fully flexible and operate using modern fully accessible minibuses. You can use CallConnect if you live in one of the locations listed and:
- You are not able to use a conventional bus service due to age, disability or mobility impairment
- No public transport exits in your area
- If the bus service from your area is infrequent, you may use CallConnect at times when the normal bus service is not running

We will of course continue to offer car parking spaces at the surgery. Whilst we realise a majority of patients currently choose to visit the surgery by car, we wish to encourage those that can come by alternative means to do so, so that those who have no other option than to use a car can use the car park. We have tried to ease car parking at the surgery by relocating our staff and official visitor car parking off site to increase availability of spaces for patients. Staff are not permitted to park in the patient car park.
Please park only within marked bays (these are due to be re-lined shortly), and do not park in the drop off bay outside the surgery, or on the service road – this is reserved for loading and emergency vehicles and can cause serious access issues.
Please do not park on the fire station access road outside of the surgery, this must be kept clear at all times.
We have a covered cycle rack near the front of the surgery for up to 8 cycles between West Elloe Pharmacy and the surgery building, dropped kerb access is available nearby.
The space where the old cycle racks are located outside the main entrance can be used for mobility scooter parking. It is recommended that mobility scooter users use the pedestrian path to access the entrance to the medical centre parking area, as the raised ramp on the entrance to the medical centre is not designed for mobility scooters.
A cycle route runs down one side of West Elloe Avenue, and along to Spalding Town Centre via the Castle Sports Centre.
A hard standing has been constructed near to the covered cycle shelter to accommodate motorcycles, accessible using dropped kerb access and a pathway. Trees nearby have been trimmed to permit easier access.
Work has recently been completed at the junction of West Elloe Avenue and Pinchbeck road to include pedestrian crossings for safe passage across both Pinchbeck Road and West Elloe Avenue.
