Where does your mother live in Morbihan?  It is a large Department.  If she lives anywhere around Redon I'll be happy to take her to her appointment in Vannes and ensure she is safe and comfortable.  Surely any Brit would want to do this for a fellow Brit.

Thank you all for your very helpful information. It seems that help is available with transport and I will advise her to start by asking her doctor about it.

just to add her carte vitale /top up will cover the taxi unless she is on a Ald then the transport is covered 100% for that illness. However the taxis are only covered if they are deemed 'necessary'. As said ask at the docs for  prescription medicale de transport, they fill the top part in, say what type of transport, ie taxi, train ,bus etc. Then you fill in the bottom half with your details and send to cpam (if you are registered there)

Ask if it's possible to have a "bon de transport" - sometimes the doctor issues it, sometimes it's the hospital.  You just hand this to the driver of the ambulance taxi.

I have had several taxi's or ambulances for hospital for examinations,  angio graphy and a stent, +double bypass, but it has to be asked for beforehand, although the hospital may issue an ordanance for this sometimes. It is a special green form by the way. My doctor says a lot of English people dont ask because they are "Reserved" about such things, but if you go to any main hospital here there seems to be lot of taxi's dropping off and collecting people there.

Just ask!

Tell your mother-in-law to enquire and speak to the doctor.

When my neighbour has hospital appointments she is taken by ambulance/taxis. All part of the service.
