How do I know which service is right for me?
Through our many years of experience with various repatriation services (Road Ambulance, Air Ambulance and Medical Escort) we have built up a wealth of knowledge and know-how in this field. Our team consists of highly competent medical experts and they will advise you on the best way to repatriate.
In doing so, we take the following factors into account:
Each patient requires medical care tailored to their exact situation. The best and safest way of transportation depends largely on his or her medical condition. Are life support measures required? Does the patient need to be ventilated? Can the patient sit upright, or will the patient have to lie down during the entire journey? Each case is carefully mapped out in consultation with the family and often with the local doctors before we come up with a plan that best suits the patient's needs.
Distance is another crucial factor in choosing the best method of transport. An ambulance can cover large distances by road, but a flight is considerably faster. Some waters can easily be crossed by ferry or through a tunnel, so an ambulance can be used by road. An ambulance flight, on the other hand, is the fastest way for international or even intercontinental repatriations. Thus, repatriation to Belgium and repatriation from Morocco are possible.
Time and speed can play an important role in the decision which transport method suits your situation best. Sometimes the circumstances are such, that waiting too long before making a decision is not an option from a medical point of view or is simply impossible for the family. In these cases, we can react quickly and take the optimal measures for your situation.
