"ambulance service for outpatient appointments is very good"

About: Scottish Ambulance Service / Patient Transport Service

(as a service user),

The ambulance service for outpatient appointments is a very good service. You can phone them up and book transport to and from the hospital, this means that family members don’t need to take time of their work. The staff are very nice and very helpful, they always help me in every way they can. They take you right to the clinic and tell them you are an ambulance patient, it’s not a problem if you arrive late because they know it wasn’t your fault.

Dear Klbrn,

It is great to hear that you have such a good opinion of the PTS. If you want me to let your local ambulance crews know, please contact me on 0141 810 6101 or pomeara@nhs.net I will pass your thanks to them and the control room staff.
