Our Patient Transport Service (PTS) ensures the safe transport of patients primarily assisting with aeromedical transfers from the airport to hospital, and provides non-emergency transport between home and the hospitals and other medical facilities like nursing homes to ensure our emergency ambulance crews are available for critical, emergency cases.
Patient Transport Services in Darwin and Alice Springs have specialty vehicles with the capability to lift and transport wheelchair, bariatric and heavy patients, and have extra seats for additional passengers like friends, family or guardians. Our PTS staff are health practitioners trained as ‘advanced first responders’ and are certified in non-emergency patient transport to ensure patients conditions are monitored and the appropriate medical treatment provided.
COVID-19 Transfer requests are arranged by the Northern Territory Government (NTG) Transport Emergency Operation Centre (Transport EOC). To arrange a transfer, please contact transport.EOC@nt.gov.au
