Campaign to save RUH Hopper Bus

UPDATE - 02/07/15 - A big thank you to everyone who signed our save the Hopper petition, a fine example that people power can make a real difference. The service is now safe until April next year, but we must keep a very close eye, to ensure that the service is funded in the next financial year.

Campaign to save RUH Hopper Bus

We the under signed call upon Wiltshire Council, to reconsider any changes to the Royal United Hospital Hopper service and call upon the Council to re-instate the £130,000 that has been cut from the budget to fund this service It is understood that Wiltshire Council must seek savings but any change in the way this service is provided would cause hardship for those who rely on this valuable service to travel to the Bath RUH.

At present this service provides a door to door service that is disabled friendly, and it’s vital this service is retained in its present form.
We would ask Wiltshire Council to remember Wiltshire is the County.

Reasons for signing

  • how will people get to hospital from wiltshire? theres no hospital out there!
  • Invaluable for my Mum when Dad was in the RUH. We can't just keep on cutting and cutting, have some compassion.
  • Many people rely on this service. It's not a nicety!
