The Cornwall Ambulance Service Urgent Transfer Service is designed to support the complete urgent and emergency care system. It has been established to deliver a high quality, patient-centred service that ensures patients are transported safely, efficiently and comfortably.
Cornwall Ambulance Service staff are expert in delivering an urgent response, 24hrs a day, across the county. Covering the whole of Cornwall, the Urgent Transfer Service is able to transfer patients when the GP and/or the receiving hospital requires, as opposed to waiting for other providers to become available.
Our Urgent Transfer Service will divert demand for clinical conveyance away from the emergency ambulance service, enabling them to respond to life threatening emergencies.
Staffed by senior, experienced paramedics and clinicians, the Urgent Transfer Service vehicles are modern, reliable and able to deliver a full clinical service for all patients requiring urgent transfer to hospital.
By solely concentrating on urgent patient transfers, the Cornwall Ambulance Service can guarantee a fully focussed, flexible service to meet the needs of healthcare partners, and the patients of Cornwall.
