EMAS將在林肯郡進行非緊急病人轉運

一個新的供應商將從2023年起在林肯郡轉移非緊急病人的健康預約。

它將於明年7月1日接管目前的供應商泰晤士救護車服務有限公司(TASL)的工作。

EMAS說它將與提供NHS護理的當地團體和TASL合作,以確保 "無縫過渡"。

非緊急病人運輸服務(NEPTS)為符合條件的病人提供運輸服務,讓他們前往醫療預約和診所,並為需要支持的病人從醫院回家。

EMAS已經在德比郡和北安普敦郡運營這項服務,在2021年運送了24萬名病人。

"我們已經對林肯郡的病人和道路網絡有了很好的了解,我們在那裡提供緊急救護服務。"

該合同已由林肯郡臨床委託小組(CCG)授予。

來自患者團體Healthwatch Lincolnshire的Sarah Fletcher說,最初TASL由於對該地區的不熟悉而陷入困境,儘管這種情況已經有所改善。

她說病人會歡迎任命EMAS的決定。

"她說:"這是一個當地的供應商,它將了解這個縣,並熟悉我們的一些道路系統和一些複雜的情況。


A new provider will transfer non-emergency patients to and from health appointments in Lincolnshire from 2023.

It will takeover from the current provider, Thames Ambulance Service Ltd (TASL), on 1 July next year.

EMAS said it would work with the local groups who deliver NHS care and TASL to ensure a "seamless transition".

Non-Emergency Patient Transport Services (NEPTS) offers transport for eligible patients to healthcare appointments and clinics and for patients who require support getting home from hospital.

EMAS already runs the service in Derbyshire and Northamptonshire and transported 240,000 patients in 2021.

"We already have a good understanding of the patients and road networks of Lincolnshire where we provide emergency ambulance care."

The contract has been awarded by the Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG).

Sarah Fletcher, from patients' group Healthwatch Lincolnshire, said initially TASL had struggled due to its lack of familiarity with the area, though that had improved.

She said patients would welcome the decision to appoint EMAS.

"It's a local provider that will know the county and is familiar with some of our road systems and some of the complexities," she said.
