PTS contract secured

EEAST has signed a contract to provide patient transport services in Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire.

It is a three-year contract that was signed on 23rd December.

Commissioners asked EEAST to support the delivery of PTS services there following the collapse of the incumbent provider Private Ambulance Service last year. 

Wayne Bartlett-Syree, Director of Strategy and Sustainability at the Trust, said: “The PTS teams in Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire have worked incredibly hard in providing this emergency cover, which ensured that patients were able to attend hospital for urgent treatments and support discharges in what has been some very difficult and challenging circumstances. 

“Signing the contract now allows EEAST to focus on improving the services and delivering a high-quality service. Consultation has already begun with staff regarding TUPE transfer and a fully substantive management structure will be put in place.  We will communicate more details soon, but once again thank you and congratulations to the teams for their hard work.”
