4 Discharge from an inpatient stay in hospital Ward staff will discuss your return travel arrangements with you Patients will be expected to pay for their taxi transport, however, if you have been transferred to Glasgow as an emergency and have no money, please speak to a member of health staff. Only patients who have been assessed as meeting the Scottish Ambulance Service (SAS) eligibility criteria will have their return journey arranged through this service. SAS transport will be allocated only on medical grounds eg. the patient is of restricted mobility, unwell, mentally incapable or has some other health problem that makes it unsuitable for them to travel by their own or public transport. The SAS will determine the mode of transport for the full journey. This will not normally include scheduled flights and may include land and ferry journeys. Travelling home following an inpatient stay or outpatient appointment If you know your flight has been cancelled you should still go to the airport so that you can make alternative travel arrangements. As you have been assessed as being fit to return home there should be no expectation that you would return to hospital due to flight cancellation, unless in exceptional circumstances. The following information also applies if you get to the airport and discover your flight is delayed or cancelled. My flight has been cancelled what happens? Under European Union (EU) regulation 261/2004 you are entitled to care and assistance from the airline. If the airline cannot provide you with another flight on the same day you are entitled to assistance at the airport including meals and refreshments.

5 FOLLOW SIGNS TO GATE 1, THERE ARE STAIRS AT THE TOP OF THE GATE AREA. The airline must also provide you with hotel accommodation, meals and transport where an overnight stay is necessary and you are unable to make alternative arrangements. Loganair s current arrangement is with an airport hotel where dinner, bed and breakfast are included in the booking. Alcohol and telephone calls from the hotel will not be paid for by the airline My flight has been delayed what happens?

If the delay lasts overnight, hotel accommodation, meals and transfers will be provided. IF YOU FIND YOURSELF AT THE TOP OF THE GATE 1-3 AREA USE THE HELP PHONE TO CALL FOR ASSISTANCE TO GET DOWN TO THE DEPARTURE LOUNGE The airline is responsible for reorganising your homeward travel. They should keep you informed and do their utmost to accommodate your reasonable needs. My flight has been delayed or cancelled can I go on a ferry instead? If travelling from Glasgow the airline will advise on this, they have to take into account road conditions en-route to the ferry and may decide it best not to. Given the distance to the nearest ferry terminal the airline may opt to accommodate you overnight instead. The airline should contact the ferry operator for you and book your passage, also transport to the ferry terminal. The airline will cover the cost, as your plane ticket will be cancelled. YOU WILL BE BOARDED ONTO THE AIRCRAFT EITHER BY USE OF A RAMP, A STAIR CLIMBER OR OCCASIONALLY BY THE AMBULIFT. 8 AMBULIFT, OFTEN AVAILABLE AT ALL AIRPORTS IN SCOTLAND FOR LOGANAIR S AIRCRAFT APART FROM GLASGOW AIRPORT AT PRESENT.

6 What to do if you have been discharged from hospital and you need advice on your care while you are waiting to travel home. At the Airport Where to Go Discharged from any NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde Hospital? Please discuss with ward staff prior to discharge or telephone the ward. Hospital telephone numbers are provided within this leaflet. Please note that airline staff will assist you as much as they can, but staff availability may be limited, particularly during peak times and bad weather. You are not well or have limited mobility; Let the ground staff at the airport know. They will take this into consideration when organising your transport and accommodation. Most hotels have wheelchair accessible rooms, please let the airline staff know you need one. You are going to run out of your usual medication: Contact NHS 24 on 111 which is the new free way to phone the NHS 24 helpline from landlines and mobiles. The helpline is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You will be asked to attend a designated Health Centre. What to do if you think the airline is not giving you the care and assistance you are entitled to. Politely remind the airline staff that you are a hospital patient and in need of particular care and consideration. If the airline does not offer refreshments, overnight accommodation etc. when your flight is delayed or cancelled. Remind them of your rights as listed on Page 3. The airline still fails to give you the care and assistance you need and are entitled to. Keep receipts for hotel accommodation, transport to and from this accommodation and dinner to the value of 15. Write a letter to the airline asking for a full refund of these expenses, other expenses are not covered (details for Loganair can be found in the Useful Contacts section). If you are still not satisfied with the airlines actions you can write to the Air Transport Users Council for further assistance with your complaint, (details can be found in the Useful Contacts section). 6 AT THE TERMINAL DROP OFF POINT, CALL HERE TO GET ASSISTANCE USUAL PASSENGER ROUTE.
