Barts NHS Trust Statement Re Uber Contract

Patient transport at Barts Health

Following inaccurate media reports about the Trust’s use of Uber to provide non-emergency patient transport, the Trust has released the following statement.

Barts Health NHS Trust said:

“We do not have any contracts with Uber to provide non-emergency patient transport. When patients need assistance getting to and from our hospitals we provide ambulances and medi-cars, driven by trained experts.

“We are working with a number of registered organisations, including Cera, to make sure patients get vital support in their own homes. This includes physiotherapy, nursing or domestic support to help people recover after a stay in hospital.”
