Hospital Transport (Patient Transport
The patient transport service (PTS) is provided for patients who
require the specialist support of an ambulance crew to travel.
Am I eligible for patient transport?
You are eligible for patient transport if:
- your medical condition means you cannot use other transport
without damaging your health
- your mobility means you are unable to access healthcare by any
- you need the skills or support of clinically trained staff and
/ or medical equipment during your journey.
Transport could also be provided to a patient's escort or carer
where their particular skills and/or support are needed. This may
be appropriate in the case of accompanying a person with a physical
or mental incapacity, a vulnerable adult, or in the case of
patients needing a translator. This would need to be agreed for
each individual case at the time of booking the transport.
How do I arrange a journey?
Hospital staff will arrange ambulance transport for discharge
journeys if you are eligible, but you will need to arrange
outpatient journeys yourself.
If you believe you qualify for the patient transport service
(PTS), and need to arrange a journey for an outpatient appointment,
you will need to contact your local Patient Transport Advice Centre
to arrange your transport. They will check whether you are
eligible and help you make travel arrangements.
You will need to have ready:
- your appointment letter with your NHS number
- the name of the GP practice to which you are registered.
If you need further guidance and support, or need help
establishing which is your CCG, please speak to a member of staff
in the relevant outpatient area, or your GP surgery.
