Repatriation from the USA to the United Kingdom

When a medical emergency happens to a loved one while visiting the USA, we understand that he or she wants to return home as soon as possible. Unfortunately, in many cases the travel insurer refuses to cover the costs of a medical repatriation. Whether the emergency is life-threatening or non-urgent, you can always count on the help of our medical experts to get you back home safely. We offer different repatriation methods from anywhere in the United States of America. In most cases your loved friend or family member will return home within 48 hours after engaging us. Please call our medical coordinators to talk about the most fitting solution. You can reach us 24 hours a day and 7 days a week via telephone (+44 20 3514 6797).

The most fitting solution

Every repatriation from the USA to the UK is a bespoke service tailored to the needs and wishes of the patient. Repatriation from UK and repatriation from South Africa is also possible. Depending on the situation, our medical coordinators can suggest different repatriation methods. In general, a private air ambulance is used when time is of the essence. That is why EMS Ambulance uses a network of (private) air ambulances that are available from any destination in the USA. Our planes are 24/7 on stand-by and are carefully designed to allow for minute-by-minute treatment over short, medium and even long-distance flights. During non-urgent situations our medical escort service might be the most optimal solution. Our experienced medical escort team will travel alongside the patient while in transit to take care of their needs. We work together with a network of commercial airline partners. After engaging us, we will directly secure a seat on the next available flight home. Please contact our medical experts to arrange the most fitting solution.
