Medical Evacuation while abroad
Did a medical emergency occur while abroad? Then it is understandable that the patient wants to transfer to the nearest medical facility as soon as possible. In some cases the patient might end up in a rural hospital that does not have all necessary equipment available to adequately treat the injuries or illness. In those cases you can count on the professional medical evacuation service of EMS Ambulance. A medical evacuation is the timely and efficient movement of the patient, via Medevac plane, helicopter or road ambulance, to another facility that has state-of-the-art medical equipment and medication available. This means that during a medical evacuation, your loved one is not always brought to a hospital in the UK.
EMS Ambulance liaises with hospitals worldwide and can transfer your loved one to any hospital within our network. We will reach the patient within 24 hours after engaging us.

Medevac or Repatriation?
Do you wonder how a medical evacuation, also known as Medevac, differs from a medical repatriation? As stated, during a medical evacuation the patient is brought to the nearest available hospital that has all necessary medical equipment and medication available. During a medical repatriation, however, the patient is transferred back to a hospital in their home country. Whether a medical evacuation or repatriation is the best option, depends on the situation and wishes of the patient. The first thing we do when you contact the medical experts of EMS Ambulance, is to create a clear picture of the situation of your loved one. Furthermore, our highly trained professional will assess all challenges involved. Is a Medevac the optimal solution? Then EMS Ambulance will arrange everything that is necessary to evacuate the patient fast, safe and cost-efficient.
