We have ability and all vehicles are equipped to help patients with a broad range of mobility issues, with each vehicle having a stretcher, secure fittings for wheelchairs and ramps. Patients with their own wheelchairs can be secured into the vehicle, alternatively we also have chairs on the ambulances.
Personable and Comfortable Journeys
We pride ourselves on our personable service ensuring patients have a comfortable experience when using our Care Home transport services.
Ambulance crews wait with patients whilst attending their appointments to ensure they are collected in a timely manner, returning to care homes as soon as they are ready. There are no long and unnecessary waiting times for ambulances to collect patients which can sometimes be the case with private ambulance and NHS patient transport services. Waiting times can be detrimental to a patients health, so a private patient transport service may be the best option.
Open Communication With Patients and Families
Having regular and open dialogue with the care home, residents and their families provides the opportunity for us to gather all relevant information about the patient, their needs and assess any potential problems. We have 5 star reviews for a reason for our Care Home transport services. Equally, our team is always on hand to answer questions and make sure everyone is fully aware of how we can help and what we are required to provide.
Special Requests and Days Out
We also do special occasion trips where residents would need medical or physical assistance and help, and wouldn’t normally be able to attend these occasions for medical reasons. This could be to Weddings, Funerals, or any sort of engagement they wanted to go to. Even if a resident wants to go the seaside for the day, get some fish and chips and visit with friends we can do that for you.
We are also able to accommodate more unusual requests. For example, during one palliative transport booking, we were delighted to be able to work together with the Macmillan Unit at Christchurch Hospital to take a patient to Bournemouth Pier and beach. This place held many important memories for her, and that she wished to visit one final time. Read about our patients journey in the Bournemouth Echo.
