Our bed-to-bed service: its benefits and how you gain from them

Reading Time: 4 minutes

Medical Repatriation UK provides a comprehensive range of air ambulances dedicated to repatriation and medevac flights to and from the United Kingdom. Our bed-to-bed service is one of our all-inclusive services that distinguishes us from other medical flight providers. Our knowledgeable and friendly case managers, who are available 24 hours a day, will plan your transfer from start to finish and tailor your long-distance patient transportation to your specific needs in a timely manner. Our procedure is straightforward, and we make certain to prioritise patient care and security, as well as quality service, with no hidden costs.

The key points of this article about the benefits of our bed-to-bed-service:

  • Bed-to-bed service entails managing the entire medical transfer process, including ground ambulance transportation between healthcare facilities and airports.
  • This service allows you to benefit greatly: 24/7 availability, all-inclusive services, a diverse fleet of ambulances, no hidden costs and so on.

What does our bed-to-bed service mean?

By opting for it, our bed-to-bed service means that as soon as your reservation is confirmed, we handle the entire medical flight process, including transfers between healthcare facilities and airports via our ground ambulances.

When selecting an air medical transport company, look for one that provides bed-to-bed service. Indeed, if you or a loved one is suffering from a serious illness or injury, or are simply too frail to withstand the rigours of a commercial flight, you can rely on Medical Repatriation UK's bed-to-bed service to travel safely to a medical care facility within the UK or from abroad to the UK.

Our bed-to-bed transfer service includes all transports between hospitals and airports in modern and fully equipped ground ambulances. Because the same stretcher can be used for both ground transportation and medical flights, this option allows patients to travel long distances in a safe, comfortable, and respectful manner. As a result, the patient is usually only moved twice during transportation: once from the departure destination bed to the stretcher and once from the stretcher to the receiving destination bed.

In general, our bed-to-bed service provides you with peace of mind and ensures that an expert (medical) team is on hand to assist you with travel logistics during a stressful time. It also ensures consistent high-quality care throughout the entire repatriation or evacuation process, as well as complete documentation by recognised staff.

How does our bed-to-bed service work?

Our bed-to-bed service is useful when a patient is ill, injured, or frail and needs to travel from one location to another within the UK, from the UK to a foreign medical facility, or from abroad to the UK. With the goal of making the journey as comfortable and patient-friendly as possible, our bed-to-bed air ambulance service can help facilitate the trip.

Ground service, logistics and planning, air ambulance flights, and an experienced medical team to attend to the patient during the trip are all part of our comprehensive bed-to-bed service. Your case manager will handle all of the details for you, allowing you to enjoy a stress-free journey.

Our staff begins the process by requesting your patient's medical report. This data is used to determine the best mode of ground and air transportation. Private jets or helicopters are all options. We then arrange for the patient to be picked up from their home, hospice, or healthcare facility and transported to the designated airport (private) terminal, where the commercial aircraft or our air ambulance aircraft will be waiting. When arriving at the destination airport, the process will be reversed. In this sense, the appropriate ground transportation will be waiting for the patient, ready to take them to their final destination. This also means that the latter is constantly accompanied by an experienced medical team/medical escort throughout the transport, thus ensuring continuity of care.

Simply put, from the time we pick up the patient until they arrive at their final destination, we plan their entire transportation. Assume the trip is disrupted by unforeseen circumstances, such as bad weather or a sudden deterioration in the patient's health. In this case, their personal case manager can quickly find another option to help them arrive at their destination safely and quickly. Indeed, our team handles all of the necessary steps to change the route, keeping the patient and family safe and reassured for the remainder of the trip.

The patient is only shifted twice during the entire transportation process: As previously stated, our comprehensive bed-to-bed service usually allows for only two transfers during the entire transport.
