Non Emergency Medical Transport
Aero Medical Ambulance Services are essential to every segment of the London and Hertfordshire area. But some of our more fragile populations face transportation challenges to get to their essential medical appointments. Some must rely on family and friends or local community organisations to transport them. If these options become limited, Aero Medical Ambulance Service can fill in the gap.
It’s not only the vulnerable portion of our populations that can be affected. We could also be talking about someone who’s normally healthy enough to get around but may be temporarily waylaid by an acute injury or surgery. Post-surgical patients aren’t allowed to drive until cleared by their healthcare provider, even if the surgery didn’t involve limbs or hands. Since surgery weakens muscles needed for driving a vehicle, and post-procedure pain medication
may make driving illegal and unsafe, alternative arrangements need to be made. After all, getting to follow-up appointments is often crucial to recovery. For many, driving their own car is out of the question. For these and many other challenges, Aero Medical Ambulance Service is the answer.
How do we define Non-Emergency Medical Transportation (NEMT)?
NEMT can be defined as a transportation service provided to individuals who are not in an emergency situation but need more assistance than a taxi service is able to provide. Service providers will be specially equipped to transport riders in wheelchairs, stretchers or with other special needs.
