Ozanam House patient & transport information

Bookings

For enquiries and bookings on the shuttles from Hawkes Bay and Taranaki, please contact:

  • Hawkes Bay 06-876 7638
  • Taranaki 06-757 3006

The shuttles travel on Mondays and Fridays and sometimes on Wednesdays, as necessary. When arranging your Radio/Chemotherapy appointments, please inform the staff that you will be a shuttle passenger, so they can make your appointment to coincide with the shuttle arrival/departure times.

The Oncology Department of the Palmerston North Hospital makes bookings for all patients coming for treatment as out-patients. Patients are notified of this when their appointments are sent to them.

Pick-Up

The driver will arrange this with you. Pick-up is made from all communities on the main route between New Plymouth to Palmerston North and Hawkes Bay to Palmerston North. Opunake passengers usually travel privately to Hawera to meet the shuttle. However, the shuttle will travel either routes (Opunake or Stratford) dependent on the passengers' requirements. The Society endeavours to make the service as flexible as possible to meet the passenger's needs.

Eligibility for Transport Assistance

Patients and their carers are eligible for transport assistance when they have a confirmed date for simulation or treatment at the Radiotherapy/Chemotherapy Unit at Palmerston North Hospital

Ministry of Health Travel Allowance
The travel allowance is available to all patients who elect to use their own vehicle or make alternative arrangements to travel from their home to Palmerston North Hospital.
