Patient Transport Service

From 1 April 2017, non-emergency patient transport will be provided by E-zec Medical Transport Services.

The patient transport service (PTS) provides planned, non-emergency transport to and from NHS hospitals and clinics in Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire, including outpatient departments, inter-hospital transfers, renal dialysis, oncology centres and your home.

It is only available to eligible patients for medical reasons. It is not available for trips to primary care services such as GP practices and is not part of the emergency ambulance service.

Patient transport vehicles are staff by ambulance care assistants (ACAs) who ensure your medical needs are met throughout the journey and during transfer.

AWARD FOR OFF DUTY PARAMEDIC 999 HERO
Bath-based paramedic Simon Moody has been hailed a hero after he stepped in to save the life of a Clevedon man – while off duty – and is encouraging everybody to learn the lifesaving CPR skill. South Western Ambulance Service’s (SWASFT) paramedic Simon Moody was off duty and stuck in Bath city centre traffic in the pouring rain in May 2017 when he noticed a man looking unwell on the pavement. It soon became clear the man was struggling to breath and was going into cardiac arrest at the side of the road, as passers-by tried to help. Luckily for the patient Simon stepped straight in and gave him chest compressions putting his paramedic life-saving skills into action before backup from his ambulance crew mates arrived.
