It is great news that our RUH Hopper Bus Service has been saved! I am pleased to let you know that working with Wiltshire Council, we have secured funding for the service until April 2016. I have been campaigning to save our service and represent the hundreds constituents who asked me to push the case.
Money is being used from the Government’s Better Care Fund to ensure the current service remains until at least the end of the current financial year. This is good news for all those who rely on the service and gives Wiltshire Council and the Clinical Commissioning Group more time to find a sustainable way of paying for the service.
