What Is a Palliative Transport Service?

Palliative Care Transport provides a means for patients to be transported between their homes and medical facilities like hospitals or hospices. Also when necessary, ensuring they can return to the comfort of their homes as well.

When the time comes to say goodbye, EMA Patient Transport provides patients with a comfortable, safe and dignified transfer to a place of their choosing. Whether it’s taking them home from hospital or another place of care, or a final visit to a location that holds important memories, our experienced and dedicated team can give patients and their loved one the power of choice during their final days.

A Priority Service

We understand that things can change rapidly when someone is near the end of their life. Our palliative conveyances are a priority service, meaning that we can be there for patients when they need us most.

Some of the most common palliative transfers we support include:

From hospital to home

From hospital to hospice or another care provider

From hospice to home

From care facility to hospice

From care facility to home

However, we are also able to accommodate more unusual requests. For example, during one palliative transport booking, we were delighted to be able to take a patient to a beach that held many important memories for her, and that she wished to visit one final time.

Our service can be booked by healthcare professionals, as well as the friends or family of the patient. 

Private Transfers, Sensitively Handled

We’re committed to making this difficult time as calm and comfortable as possible, not only for the patient but for their loved ones too. Each palliative transfer is completely private, with just the patient and their nominated companion on board, supported by our experienced team.

Every journey is tailored completely to the needs of the individual, with patience and sensitivity at every stage. Should patients have medical requirements, our fully stocked vehicles have the necessary equipment and trained personnel needed to offer support during the conveyance.

Whether the patient would prefer a quiet, peaceful journey or the distraction of music or conversation, our compassionate team will create the environment that they desire.
