The Lincolnshire Transport Helpline provides information and advice on a wide range of transport options including community car scheme and CallConnect. The helpline can be contacted on 0345 456 4474 or by https://lincsbus.info/accessing…/transport-helpline/ The helpline operates from 9 am to 6 pm Monday – Fri and 9.30 am – 4 pm on Saturday.
CallConnect is an on-demand bus service that is paid for by the customer. If someone has a concessionary bus pass due to age or disability they can assess CallConnect free of charge. For the purposes of COVID 19 vaccination programme only, Transport Services have agreed to extend this free to anyone aged 67 and over, regardless of whether they have a bus pass or not.
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.
