Our ambulances are state-of-the-art
Our ambulances are state-of-the-art mobile emergency rooms where patients can be diagnosed, treated and stabilised by our medical team. Every ambulance in our fleet is ICU equipped, and has a full complement of medicine and modern equipment on board, including a ventilator.
Road ambulances are one of the safest, most convenient and comfortable ways for a patient to travel. Depending on your situation, it may be possible for the patient to complete the entire journey by road ambulance. We are able to take patients over long distances by road, and our state-of-the-art vacuum mattresses can keep patients comfortable even over thousands of kilometres.
Because we have our own fleet, we can often arrange for a same-day departure. We send the best doctors, paramedics and nurses for the journey, with the right specialisms for your situation.
All of our vehicles have been designed with the long-distance transportation of patients in mind. To increase patient safety and comfort we choose to use only vehicles with automatic gearboxes to avoid sudden jerks and starts. In addition, our ambulances are all fitted with air suspension rather than a standard spring suspension, giving a smoother ride and increased comfort on irregular road surfaces.

Inside a road ambulance
During the journey all the patient’s needs will be looked after by our trained staff, including the administration of medicine or treatments. If the patient is able to eat and drink, the team will make sure they receive plenty of food and water – at no extra charge.
The patient’s stretcher can be put in either a flat or an upright position so the patient can lie down or sit up when they want to. It is possible to switch between these positions while moving, so there is no need to interrupt the journey to ensure the patient is comfortable. If the patient is mobile, we will stop for comfort breaks whenever necessary during which they’ll be able to use the lavatory. The medical team can offer assistance if needed.
In most cases, patients can take a piece of luggage and a foldable non-electric wheelchair on board the ambulance. Depending on the patient’s condition it is often also possible for one other person to accompany the patient during the repatriation journey – as long as it doesn’t interfere with patient safety or treatment.
