Patient Transport Service

Patient Transport Services (PTS)

Provide for those patients whose medical condition means they cannot get to their appointment any other way.

The service provides a range of vehicle types and levels of care appropriate for the patient’s medical needs to ensure the patient travels as safe and as comfortable as possible to their appointment. PTS is a vital resource for those who need it and recently revised criteria, based on national guidance, is applied to all new requests. This means all patients will be assessed on their suitability for transport using a short and simple series of questions when booking.  Please make sure you have your NHS number at the time of booking, otherwise your request will not be able to be processed. 

To request PTS you need to contact 0800 092 4020.
