Patient Transport Update from the North East Ambulance Service NHS Trust


The North East Ambulance Service (NEAS) are providing transport, safely and swiftly during the COVID-19 pandemic, for those who need to attend appointments because of a life-threatening condition. Patients calling 999 for an emergency ambulance will be provided with a face mask, unless this compromises their care; for example, when being given oxygen. 

For more information on how the NEAS continues to follow government guidance to ensure that the NHS can support people who need to go to hospital, please download the document below.
