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.
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!
Allocate Transport Marketplace is a digital platform for approved transport Providers and the only solution of its kind. It’s free for healthcare organisations to use and can be implemented in as little as 24 hours.
Each year, Allocate Transport Marketplace helps to dispatch 19 million journeys with pre-approved providers. They do this through a secure cloud-based platform that enables users to publicise their requirements. Providers then bid for your work, from individual journeys to block bookings, meaning you’ll always have your pick of the best prices and most reliable transport.
