Update on new Sussex Patient Transport Service
South Central Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust (SCAS) is taking over the contract for the Sussex non-emergency Patient Transport Service (PTS).
In order to minimise disruption to patients who use the service, the transfer will be phased over several months, with SCAS taking complete responsibility from April 2017.
You can find information for patients about the changeover here.
SCAS has 40 years’ experience, and currently provides the PTS service across the whole of the South Central region, including Hampshire and the Thames Valley (Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire). It is rated good by the CQC, who specifically highlighted the care that SCAS staff provide to patients using the Patient Transport Service, rating it as outstanding.
