The number for the new provider, Private Ambulance Service (PAS) is 0208 045 4254.When patients call to book transport, they will be assessed for need. Transport will only be booked for those patients whose medical need or mobility means that they cannot travel by any other means. Any patients who do not meet the criteria for NHS transport will be signposted to alternative door-to-door transport options, such as the voluntary car scheme.

Patients are to ensure they have their NHS number to hand when they call to book a journey.

Any patients who do not meet the criteria for NHS transport will be signposted to alternative door-to-door transport options, such as the voluntary car scheme.

This means that some patients who currently receive transport may no longer qualify from 1 April. Journeys can be booked between two weeks and two working days in advance.

Patients must have their NHS number to hand when they call the patient line.
