Fast and secure repatriation from the Canary Islands

Things can get very complicated when a medical emergency happens while visiting the Canary Islands. To begin with, healthcare standards are different in comparison to the standards back home in the United Kingdom. Also, in most cases the medical personal in the Spanish hospitals don’t speak English very well. At EMS Ambulance we understand that you prefer to return home as soon as possible. In these cases medical repatriation from the Canary Islands to the United Kingdom might be necessary. Often, the travel insurance company refuses to cover the costs of a medical repatriation. Luckily you can always count on the trusted and reliable repatriation services of EMS Ambulance. You can reach us 24/7 to organise a repatriation from any Canary Island.

Discover the best repatriation method

The Canary Islands are an island group in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. That is why repatriation via (private) air ambulance is often the most direct and convenient method to return home from this destination. Every air ambulance is a bespoke repatriation service that is tailored to the situation of the patient. All of our air ambulances are designed to allow for minute-by-minute treatment over short, medium and long-distance flights. Did an emergency happen on the Canary Islands and is there no immediate threat to life? Then our medical escort service might be the best repatriation method. A medical escort is a team of professionals who travel alongside the patient while in transit to take care of your needs. EMS Ambulance cooperates with a wide range of commercial airline partners. After engaging us, we will contact our commercial airline partners to secure a place on the nearest available flight home. Please contact our medical coordinators for free advice about the most fitting solution.
