AMBTRANS AMBULANCE For Mental Health5 Orpington Drive
AMBTRANS is an Independent Ambulance Service, based in the West Midlands, specialising in the transportation of mental health patients and clients. We understand the unique requirements needed to transport patients with mental illness whether it is home to hospital, inter-hospital transfer, or alternative locations throughout the UK. Working in partnership with mental health professionals (NHS, Council ASWs and Private Healthcare Personnel), AMBTRANS provide both ambulance-car and ambulance transport for people with mental illness regardless of whether the person is informal (voluntary) or involuntary. Transportation for people travelling involuntary is provided by the least restrictive means possible and in a manner that ensures the safety of the person and others, and minimises interference with the person?s privacy, dignity and self-respect. Mental Illness is surrounded by prejudice, myths and misunderstanding.
