Patient transport

On October 1, 2014, South Central Ambulance Service (SCAS) NHS Foundation Trust took over provision of the patient transport service (PTS) across Hampshire – including the area covered by our CCG.

It already runs a PTS in Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire providing transport for people unable to use public or other transport due to their medical condition, and who meet the criteria explained below.

SCAS now provides this non-emergency service in Hampshire addition to the 999 ambulance and many other services.

From June 1, 2015, it also introduced a new ETA (estimated time of arrival) service - in which users can call a dedicated number, 0300 0135 003, to get an estimated time of arrival for their transport.
