I thought you lived in Berwick?
It's easy enough to get to the main Northumberland hospital by bus from Berwick (NB. I'll be on the Berwick bus tomorrow, as I've got another hospital appointment). To be fair, the three journeys I've done there in the past twelve months by emergency ambulance have been much quicker, not least due to the fact that you get seen straight away at the other end (NB. Though it can be difficult to leave the place - twice the $%^&$££ have attempted to force me to stay. Caught the bus home on both occasions )
And with more minor issues such as breaking a couple of ribs and a shoulder three weeks ago, I found it easy enough to walk & cycle to the local A & E
I didn't say impossible but that car was most reasonable. I live in the country: first a bus to town (two hourly) them one or more buses. All to coincide with appointment time. Then in reverse and last bus from town about 6.00pm
