Statement regarding Patient Transport Service contract for Surrey

10 August 2016

Please attribute to a South East Coast Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust (SECAmb) spokesperson:

“South East Coast Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust (SECAmb) is disappointed that its bid to continue to provide the Patient Transport Service across Surrey beyond April 2017 was unsuccessful.

“The Trust ensured its bid would allow it to build on its current service delivery and provide a high quality and responsive service.

“This news sadly sees the end of SECAmb providing PTS in its region after a long and proud history. We would like to pay tribute to the dedication and commitment of our PTS staff across Surrey and thank them for their continued professionalism.

“Staff directly affected will be contacted to discuss next steps and how the process will work moving forward. We will be also working closely with trade unions, local commissioners and with the future provider South Central Ambulance Service in the coming months.”
