How does the service work?
At least a week before your appointment call 508-485-6492, extension 32199 and leave your name, phone number, date, time and location of medical appointment(s).
Within two days you will receive a call back from the FISH coordinator, who will then try to identify a driver for you. That driver will contact you for final arrangementS. On the agreed date the FISH driver will drive you to your appointment and then back home. Rides are provided locally, within MetroWest and Worcester.
