Transport for patients needing to get to Non-Emergency appointments who have a specific medical need
The Welsh Ambulance Services NHS Trust provide a Non-Emergency Patient Transport Service for patients across Wales who are unable, for medical reasons, to make their own way to and from their hospital appointments.
It is a vital resource to help those patients who rely on the service and it should not be used by those without a medical need.
Please note that a need for treatment does not automatically imply a need for transport. There is an eligibility process that all patients are required to go through to ensure that your needs are appropriate for the service.
For patients who are found non eligible, there is an Alternative Transport Team that can discuss transport options in your area.
You could be eligible for hospital transport if;
Up to 100,000, Non-Emergency Patient Transport journeys every year result in the patient not travelling or not being at the collection point when our crews arrive. Cancelling transport, if it is no longer needed, is very important and allows the Non-Emergency Patient Transport Service to offer the booking to another patient.
If you are eligible and book transport but need to cancel a booking, please call the number below or visit their website.
