In a medical emergency, where the need is critical, or life-threatening, patients or their carers should dial 999 for a paramedic-led ambulance response. NHS Choices states that ‘it will generally be obvious if the patient, or someone else, is seriously ill, or injured, and will need emergency care’. A medical professional may also call for an ambulance on your behalf where this is appropriate. For non-emergencies, other use of ambulance transport is based on agreed eligibility criteria, according to the medical needs of the patient.

You may be able to claim a refund under the ‘Healthcare Travel Costs Scheme’ (HTCS) of the cost of travelling to hospital or other NHS premises for NHS-funded treatment or diagnostic test arranged by a doctor or dentist, if you are in receipt of certain allowances or benefits.
To obtain a HTCS refund you will need to complete a HC5 (T) form, available from the Cashier’s or General Office at each hospital site. More information on the Healthcare Travel Costs Scheme can be found on the NHS Choices website.
