Not all of our work involves blue lights!

 

A vital part what we do involves taking people to and from routine outpatient appointments at clinics, hospitals and day centres.  The Patient Care Service makes over 1.5 million journeys every year for patients across Wales.

 

Our highly trained crews use a modern fleet of vehicles and work alongside the hospitals to ensure that we get you to your appointment as comfortably as possible.

 

The range of vehicles we have mean that we can convey a wide-range of patients including those who need stretchers, patients who use wheel-chairs and patients who have a limited walking mobility.

A large number of the journeys for patients who are able to get in and out of a car are made by our dedicated team of volunteer drivers

 


In order to make it easier to book transport with us we have introduced a single telephone number for all first journeys

North Wales - Tel 0845 60 76 181

 

When you call for transport you will be asked a series of simple questions so that we can assess whether you are eligible for transport.  Eligibility is based upon a medical criteria, which has been agreed nationally by the Welsh Assembly government. If you do qualify, staff at the non-emergency transport centres will book the Ambulance Transport for you. 

 

If you do not meet the criteria, you will be offered alternative contact numbers for organisations that may be able to provide transport for you.

Any subsequent appointments that you have must be arranged by the hospital department that you are attending.
