Health industry resources - Patient transport

This category features non-emergency patient transport services, modified vehicles and vehicles designed for wheelchair transport.

There are guidelines that define emergency and non-emergency patient transport. Non-emergency transport is the movement of medically stable patients.

Most emergency patient transport service in Australia is delivered by state and territory public sector ambulance services. The non-emergency patient transport industry has a wider variety of participants including private providers independently or pursuant to contractual arrangements with ambulance services; international air ambulance and patient transport services; and the Department of Veterans Affairs.

Non-emergency patient transport services carry patients on stretchers and in wheelchairs and offer car transport to medical appointments. Taxi companies also offer wheelchair transport and carry patients escorted by medical staff, although these services are not defined as patient transport.

The non-emergency patient transport industry is regulated by law and managed by human services departments of state and territory governments. Providers are licensed and accredited and must observe relevant clinical practice protocols.

Non-emergency patient transport providers also offer standby services at public and sporting events.
