Non-emergency patient transport

Our fleet of ambulances are all equipped with ramps and floor tracking to make sure patients are transferred safely and comfortably.  And, of course, our vehicles are staffed by experienced, highly trained, uniformed professionals, all of whom have been fully advanced DBS checked.
