Patient Transport- again.

You may have read previous posts regarding my difficulties with patient transport, which have been echoed by a post today in the Economist, which asks the question “should people in receipt of free health care be given free patient transport?”

It also covers issues around eligibility criteria for this service tightening up, and the implications this means for the service. I discussed that in this post, in which I also talked about the amount of time people are expected to wait for their lift home. Rules and regulations that mean no carers or children can be transported with the client, which I discussed here.

Seems like I’m not the only person to identify these problems with patient transport!
