North East and North Lincolnshire CCG are carrying out public engagement to inform the specification for NHS non-emergency patient transport services. Please share this information and survey link with your family and friends to help make sure as many people as possible can have their say about NHS Patient Transport Services.
Keeping the wheels in motion – NHS Patient Transport
We want to ask for your help in the way we decide how to run the Patient Transport service in the future and ensure it is fair for everyone.
North and North East Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) intend to jointly commission Non-Emergency Patient Transport Services (NEPTS) for the area from April 2016 onwards. The service provides transport for eligible patients to attend NHS-funded non-primary services to which they have been referred to by a GP or consultant.
We want to hear from people who use patient transport or have used it before and also from people who don’t use it.
Have you say by completing our online survey: www.surveymonkey.com/r/NHSPatientTransport
