Non-emergency medical transport
Non-emergency medical transport service is the special transport of sick or injured patients who cannot use normal means of transportation, either because it is physically impossible for them or due to other clinically-based reasons.
Depending on the type of vehicle, non-emergency medical transport can be:
- Individual medical transport: in the case where the vehicle has a bunk.
- Group medical transport: in the case of vehicles suitable to carry up to 6 people as users.
Depending on the moment of the request, transport may be:
- Scheduled medical transport: when the request is made with at least 24 hours notice.
- Unscheduled medical transport: when the service must be carried out at a specific time and was not pre-planned (A&E discharge, diagnostic test in another centre, etc.)
