Paediatric Emergency Transfer Service
Meditransport Ambulance Service offers a highly specialised Paediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) transport service. Our vehicles are based on our High Dependency Units but are designed around the unique needs of a child patient and the ICU team’s equipment. We have outfitted the ambulance with an extra seat so that a parent can accompany the child. The ambulances are equipped so that they are able to perform back to back transfers, without returning back to their station to reequip themselves.
We work closely with our clients to design bespoke vehicle solutions to ensure the safe and timely transport of sick children, specialist medical teams and parents between hospitals.
During transportation, we are fully aware that the journey needs to be smooth and stress-free, and we only undertake the use of blue-lights when deemed appropriate by a medical professional.
One active team is available each day of the year, with a second team on duty during peak times of the year. The Team is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and provides a Specialist Paediatric Intensive Care Service.
