Why is a Private patient Transport service more comfortable?
Private hospital patient transport makes journeys considerably more comfortable by providing extra care for the people who need it most. Travelling to and from the hospital can be a nerve-wracking experience for some, especially those with mental health issues or fear around clinical situations.
All patients deserve the highest level of care at all times, and some often have additional needs that regular patient transport may not cater to. Transporting patients can at times be challenging; travelling can be highly uncomfortable for people with specific needs. Not only do our vehicles have medical equipment on board, but they also provide extra features, such as sensory lights, to ensure the patient is relaxed and content.
Let’s discuss the ways our private ambulances make our patients more comfortable.

Care & Compassion

As mentioned above, our private ambulances contain medical equipment which our team are trained to use if needed. Alongside this, our vehicles are custom made to meet patients’ needs. These features include wheelchair ramps and bariatric stretchers. Our vehicles are also made for single person use, meaning patients who prefer a quiet ride don’t need to share with others.
Alongside these fantastic features, our ambulances offer a range of distraction techniques to take patients’ minds off the situation and make the journey as comfortable as people. Here are a few of the distractions on board.
Great for keeping our patients focused and occupied, also helping to create a rapport between the staff and patient. Helping build relationships, a vital part of trust.
