Getting to and from hospital

Two Ambulance Care Assistamts help a patient in an ambulance

If the person you are caring for qualifies, they can use our Patient Transport Service to take them to and from their pre-arranged hospital appointments, or for their admission and discharge to hospital.

Patient transport is available to patients who:

  • require assistance from skilled ambulance staff
  • have a medical condition that would prevent them from travelling to hospital by any other means
  • have a medical condition that might put them at risk from harm if they were to travel independently
  • have mobility difficulties that require the assistance of ambulance care staff
  • are attending hospital for treatment that might have side effects and require ambulance care on the return journey
