Nottsbus On Demand

Nottsbus On Demand is a new flexible way to travel by bus. Unlike a traditional bus service, Nottsbus On Demand doesn’t have a fixed route or follow a timetable. Instead, our buses can travel anywhere between bus stops and designated points within the operating zones, where there is not already a scheduled bus service running.

With Nottsbus On Demand you can choose when to travel by booking your journey through our easy-to-use Nottsbus On Demand app (available to download for free from the Apple App Store and Google Play stores), or over the phone by calling 0115 804 0404. (Please note this phone line is only available between 8:30am and 5pm Monday to Thursday and 8:30am to 4:30pm Friday, excluding bank holidays).

When you’re ready to travel simply book the bus to pick you up from a bus stop or designated point that is convenient for you. Our smart technology will match your journey with other customers travelling in the same direction so you can be picked up along the way.

You can book journeys ‘on demand’ as required, or in advance if you are travelling the next day. If you are making an on demand booking we estimate that it could take anywhere between five and 60 minutes for the bus to reach your bus stop or designated pick-up point, so please take this into consideration.

GP CPCS (Community Pharmacist Consultation Service)

The NHS Community Pharmacist Consultation Service (CPCS) is a national Advanced Service to refer patients requiring low acuity advice, treatment and urgent repeat prescriptions to community pharmacies.

The service aims to reduce pressure on the primary and urgent care system, particularly Accident and Emergency and GP out of hours. The service will support the integration of community pharmacy into the urgent care system.

We have teamed up with Evans Pharmacy in East Leake and Ruddington and we may refer you to them if we think this is more appropriate than a GP or Nurse appointment. Many Pharmacists are now trained to treat minor ailments and they can offer you advice and write a prescription if needed.
