Custom Built Vehicles:
We don’t use small van ambulance conversions, we believe that the longer the journey then the more comfortable it should be and the size of the vehicle has a lot to do with that. All our repatriation vehicles are fitted to full front line A & E specifications, they are equipped with the latest 12 lead cardiac recognition and monitoring devices, defibrillation, medical gases, specialist mattresses, ventilators, tea & coffee facilities, patients own DVD/ Sat Nav/ Radio/ Game station and WiFi, A/C and Heating to the patient compartment, the ability to go to the toilet if required, passenger luggage space and room for a family member to travel too. Our vehicles are equipped with specialist air suspension to make the ride as smooth as possible along with in-vehicle adaptations for challenging terrains like snow. We naturally are equipped with European navigation and communications.
We also have within our fleet stretcher carrying 4x4’s, Rapid Response Ambulance Cars (Mercedes) and Covert Range Rover Ambulances for our VIP clients.
All our staff are professional ambulance personnel and have worked for the NHS in frontline A & E roles. We match the skill level of the staff to the patient’s needs, this includes paramedics, nurses and doctors all of which are DBS and security checked. Many of our staff speak multiple languages and can be matched to the destinations where our services are required.
We have a clear pricing structure, this is based on the time the transport will take and expenses like accommodation/ Ferries/ Trains etc. The price that we give you is the confirmed price you will be charged. Our hourly rate is £65 per hour for an ambulance using qualified ambulance staff, so as an example, London to Chamonix in Southern France on the boarder of Switzland: Journey time is 11 hours each way (google) + 4 hours to allow for patient comfort breaks and collection from a facility (26 hours) accommodation and train/tunnel fees estimated as change depending on the date (£500) total cost £2190.oo (correct Feb 2017)
