In advance of the air ambulance flight, we need as much information as possible about the patient's condition. The more information we have, the better we can prepare the ambulance aircraft for the patient.

A turnkey option

Is a medical repatriation aboard an ambulance aircraft needed, or perhaps a flexible domestic patient transport?

Regardless of whether our patients are transported back to the UK in an air ambulance, whether a helicopter is needed for a flexible patient journey without detours via airports, or whether, for short journeys, our most economical alternative by ground ambulance is sufficient, you can rest assured our repatriations experts will provide you with the best care tailored for your medical condition. 

An air ambulance is used when a medical repatriation is necessary. Patients whose health status is critical or unclear must be transported to a UK hospital by air ambulance as soon as possible. Such an ambulance flight is possible at any time, at short notice. We will do everything we can to prepare your ambulance aircraft for take-off as quickly as possible.

A cost-efficient repatriation option for non-critical patients

If the illness or injury is not critical or serious, we recommend the more economical option of using a scheduled airliner. A medical repatriation is only possible on a scheduled aircraft under certain conditions. The decision is made according to the patient's condition. Generally there are three options for a repatriation on board a scheduled airliner:

  1. Repatriation of stable patients, seated
  2. Repatriation of stable patients, lying down
  3. Intensive care transport in a scheduled airliner

If the patient is not abroad but needs to be transferred to another hospital, an ambulance flight by helicopter is an option. As long as the journey is not medium or long-haul, we recommend an ambulance flight by helicopter instead of a patient transport in an ambulance aircraft.
