“It’s going to help us implement a completely new way of working. At the moment, with the transport distribution service, we’re using it to replicate the way we’ve been working for quite some time. That’s going to help us to understand where we’re putting our effort, where we’ve got time-wasting, and then we can start improving our service.”

Save up to 15% on your patient transportation costs

The health and care expenditure for non-emergency patient transport is upwards of £460 million per year, with individual trusts paying in excess of £5 million for transport that is quite possibly incompliant, unreliable and above a competitive rate.

The results? An ongoing cycle of high ad-hoc costs and potentially missed patient appointments due to the reliability of out-of-area providers.

Get greater control on transportation quality and spend

With costs under continuous scrutiny and patient safety at the forefront of organisational goals, how can you be sure that you’re choosing the most cost-effective, responsive and safest travel for your patients? Here’s your opportunity to make a simple yet compelling impact on your costs, your patients and your organisation – the time to change the direction of NHS travel is now!
