Derbyshire County Council Gold Card

Derbyshire County Council is trialling a new Disabled plus Companion Gold Card for those that are unable to travel alone. It's a travel, discount and library card for older people and people with certain disabilities.

Free bus travel

Gold Card currently allows you to travel free, on local buses, throughout Derbyshire, from 9.30am up to 11pm on weekdays, and at any time during weekends and on bank holidays.

Library card

Your Derbyshire Gold Card can also be used as a library card at all Derbyshire Libraries.

Just hand it to a member of library staff the first time you want to use it and they'll register your details.

Travel Derbyshire On Demand

A new Bus Service has gone live for the people for  Chesterfield/Bolsover/North East Derbyshire.
There is no fixed bus timetable, so pick-up times, routes and destinations can be planned to suit the needs of where and when passengers want to travel.
You can also travel from within the operating area to and from Kings Mill Hospital in Sutton in Ashfield or Alfreton Train Station.
This service can be used to visit friends, attend medical appointments, trips to the shops and it is fully accessible to everyone, old or young, and able to carry passengers in wheelchairs and offers space for pushchairs.

Help from the IPG (Formerly PPG)

As a practice, we meet routinely with our Inspire Patient Group to discuss themes from patients and make improvements to our services. 

As our new appointment system has now been in place for a month, we met with the IPG to give us feedback from their list of patients registered with IPG on how the system is working.
