Patient Transport Service (PTS)

Thu, 17 Apr 2014 12:04:03 +0000

Patient Transport Services is a non-emergency service that provides hospital transport for patients to and from hospital appointments. It is only provided for patients who have very specific needs and fit the eligibility criteria.

You are eligible for PTS if:

  • · You have a medical condition that requires the skills and support of PTS staff during the journey, or if travelling by other means would have a negative impact on your condition or recovery
  • Your medical condition affects your mobility so that you can’t access healthcare by yourself, or if travelling by other means would have a negative impact on your condition or recovery.

Eligibility for PTS is determined by our non-clinically trained staff members who work within locally agreed guidelines set out by Wakefield Clinical Commissioning Group.
