Transport Booking Form

We provide a service that meets the demands of hospitals, nursing homes and insurance companies that to date could only be provided by Full Size - Front Line Ambulance's.

It is our experience that many patients such as radiotherapy, cardiac, patients who have traveled from abroad on medical repatriation grounds or just any patient who is nervous or anxious, have expressed concerns at having to travel in large front line ambulances. The concept of Medical Cars and Understanding Staff provided by E.M.S.S will put these patients at ease and comfort whilst in our care.

Should it be medically necessary, any patient can be either upgraded to a Full Front Line Ambulance or transported under Blue Lights & Siren to a medical facility.

E.M.S.S continue to provide the highest possible standards of Service to patients entrusted to travel with us. To this end we operate dedicated performance vehicles.

These vehicles range in size from the Rover 620si, which will accommodate 3 passengers, full emergency equipment, oxygen storage, patient transfer chair and driver in excellent comfort, and the Ford Scorpio 2,3i Ghia, which will also carry 3 passengers in executive comfort and all equipment needed.

To complement our Medical Car Division we have a fully equipped and dedicated Mobility Support and Special Needs vehicle. This unit is wheelchair accessible and once in place, wheelchairs are secured by means of a 4 point Q-Straint belt system. The patient is also secured by a shoulder & lab seat belt, while remaining in the wheelchair.

The other variant for this unit is as an Incubator Transport Vehicle. Again the incubator is secured to the floor by means of the 4 point Q-Straint system for total safety.

The latest addition to our Front Line Fleet is a modem concept Mobile Intensive Therapy Ambulance. This vehicle is equipped to a very high standard, with on board Cardiac Defibrillator, sP02 Monitoring, Digital Non Invasive Blood Pressure. 3 and 12 Lead Cardiac Monitoring with Pacing Facility.

Whilst on board this ambulance the patient can be monitored both in the cab and also in the receiving Hospital or Medical Control Facility via a OSM Data Transmission System installed in this unit. All vital signs and video image can be transmitted world-wide.

All vehicles have on board Fax, Internet, and E-mail capabilities along with GPS Navigation.

All vehicles are White in colour and are equipped with Hi-Visibility Strobe Light bar, 3 Stage Siren and High Intensity Reflective Medical Markings.
