It was very interesting to read the comments made about TRIP recently.

It was very interesting to read the comments made about TRIP recently.Over the years, we have used the TRIP service - the service they gave my husband over the last few years of his life was marvellous. Since that time, I now rely on TRIP for their service to the community. Where on earth would you get volunteers who not only drive you from your door to hospitals here and Exeter, Axminster, etc, and then wait for you, sometimes an hour or more?A local response service and ambulance cannot cover the needs of the elderly and we are very lucky to have TRIP to augment those services.Elvira Jackett Millhead Road Honiton
