Bariatric transport services
We offer a UK-wide bariatric service, providing support 24
hours a day, 365 days a year utilising our experienced crews with
specially designed, fully-equipped vehicles.
We have been undertaking specialist bariatric transportation
since 2002. Our expert crews are all trained in manual handling to
EMT level and are qualified ‘blue light’ drivers who ensure patient
comfort, dignity and respect is maintained at all times.
Our bariatric vehicles are designed to provide a safe and
dignified transport solution to those whose weight, or condition,
requires specialist transport. The vehicles have been converted to
include specialist bariatric moving equipment to convey patients
and are fitted out to A&E standards.
We have developed safe systems of working and comprehensive risk
assessments for the bariatric work our crews undertake, which have
been assessed and approved by the Ambulance Trusts. They offer an
enhanced level of protection to both our customers, our partner
agencies and our staff.
'Without the help and guidance of St John Ambulance, a
very complicated bariatric transfer could never have been
'This procedure required the support of 4 additional workers and
equipment. All four members of the St John Ambulance team involved
in this were very professional, thoughtful, reassuring to the
client and skilled throughout the process of what was a very
difficult procedure. The quality of team work was exemplary.'
