At MedEMS, our secure ambulance staff are all highly-trained mental health professionals with years of experience in this particular field. They can be relied upon to treat your patient with care and respect, keeping them calm throughout their ambulance transfer.
In addition to mental health training, our ambulance crews are experienced in dealing with geriatric patients.

As ever, the health and safety of our patients is always our first priority and the expertise of our ambulance staff reflects this.
We offer a range of ambulance solutions for our elderly mental health patients. These include marked and unmarked vehicles, as well as clinical and non-clinical vehicles.
