St John Ambulance Bariatric Ambulance Service

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.

Vehicles

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.

Safety

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.
