Patient Transport Service (PTS) is available for patients who require transport to, or from, a health facility such as a hospital, rehabilitation unit or aged care facility and are assessed as medically unsuitable for community, public or private transport by a medical practitioner or registered nurse.

PTS is suitable for patients who:

  • require stretcher transport

  • have a medical or other condition that a medical practitioner or registered nurse would assess as causing the patient to be gravely embarrassed on public transport e.g. incontinence or disfigurement

PTS is not suitable for patients who:

  • can walk and live independently in the community
  • have a life threatening condition that requires emergency transport
  • are behaviourally unstable requiring mechanical restraint
  • are assessed as likely to deteriorate and fall outside “Between the Flags
  • are assessed by a medical practitioner or registered nurse as unsuitable to be transported by PTS
