Who can I travel with?

A patient is helped onto a Patient Transport Service ambulance

Unfortunately, space on ambulance transport is very limited. This means that you can’t take an escort with you unless you have a medical need that would require treatment during your ambulance journey. You may travel on the ambulance with an escort or carer if:

  • if you are under 16 years old
  • if you have learning difficulties
  • if you require more specialist personal support from a carer due to your medical condition or a mental health condition.  

Assistance dogs can travel with you to and from your appointment
